Another 2 races were held yesterday (Wednesday) at the Raceboard Worlds in Cadiz in light winds. [more]Max Wojcik (POL) and Curro Manchon (ESP) took 1st places in their fleets in race 4 to maintain their first and second positions at the top of the leaderboard. Patrik Pollak (SVK) is in third overall although has the same points as Curro, and Fernando Martinez (ESP) is just one behind in overall fourth place.
Nicolas Huguet (FRA) consolidated his position as first RS:X with a first and a sixth in the lighter winds and Julien Bontemps (FRA) and Joeri van Dijk (NED) are maintaining strong positions with their RS:X’s.
Ricardo Santos (BRA) showed good form by taking a bullet in race 3 and there are other interesting moments of personal triumph right down the overall results of both men’s fleets so there is a great deal to play for in this battle for the Raceboard Men’s Championship.
Spain dominates the Ladies fleet. Two more bullets for Carmen Vaz (ESP), put her a clear four points ahead overall, making her favourite for this year’s Championship. Just one point separates her closest rivals Gabriella Herran (ESP) and Antonia Dominguez (ESP) in second and third. Olympic Champion, Faustine Merret (FRA) has some work to do to catch up but, if the forecast stronger winds materialise, no-one can discount this contender for the Women’s Championship title!
As competitors take to the water for the third day of racing, stay tuned for more news from Cadiz.
