Tomorrow sees the last day of racing – who will take the Raceboard World Championship title?
Men’s results – Gold Fleet
Despite Carmen Vaz’ (ESP) less than spectacular performance today, she remains untouchable at the top of the Ladies Fleet. Spanish domination however has been broken as Bryony Shaw (GBR) has moved up from fifth to second place and Faustine Merret (FRA) has moved from fourth to third.
The first of today’s races was won by Olga Maslivets (UKR), Antonia Frey took the second bullet and Christine Johnston (GBR) took the third. Lucy Horwood (GBR) deserves a mention for consistently coming second in all three.
This is turning out to be a really interesting contest!
