2022 ILCA 7 Masters World Championship presented by Paradise Village Group at Vallarta - Day 5

by ILCA 6 Jun 2022 21:31 PDT 31 May - 7 June 2022

Two races were completed today at the 2022 ILCA 7 Masters World Championship in Riviera Nayarit, Nueveo Vallarta, Mexico. The racing kicked off in about 8–10 knots, and the breeze picked up a little for the second race to 11–13 knots.

There were some tricky shifts to navigate, which created opportunities for new race winners at the event. The Apprentice and Masters fleet had a general recall, so the race committee reset the course after a 20-degree wind shift, and the fleet was able to get a clean start. All other starts today were clear.

In the Apprentice fleet, Adil Khalid of the United Arab Emirates claimed the first race today and Charles Baillie Strong of Luxembourg won the second race, but the overall standings remain unchanged from yesterday: Argentina’s Andres Heredia sits in first, Strong is in second, and Khalid in third. In the Masters fleet, Canadian Ray Davies won race 9 and American Ernesto Rodriguez won race 10, but as in the Apprentice fleet, the leaderboard holds the same as yesterday: Greece’s Adonis Bourgiouris leads the division, ahead of Rodriguez in second and Great Britain’s Orlando Gledhill in third.

In the Grand Masters fleet, Canadian Allan Clark won the first race of the day – as a typical ILCA 6 sailor, the lighter wind suited him. The fleet’s leader of the week, Australian Brett Beyer, won the second race and continues to hold first overall. Great Britain’s Mark Lyttle still sits in second and Spain’s Jose Maria Van Der Ploeg in third.

In the Great Grand Masters fleet, American James Jacob won race 9 and the fleet’s leader, Great Britain’s Tim Law, claimed race 10. German Wolfgang Gerz still holds second overall and American Peter Vessella is still in third.

Two races are scheduled for tomorrow. For full results visit
