After a bad start in the only race of the day, Flavio Marazzi/Enrico De Maria SUI came back strongly and terminated the heat on rank 12 of the Starboats, advancing on rank 5 overall. Christoph Bottoni SUI in the Lasers is also performing strongly, progressing on rank 22, ahead of the Olympic Champion Paul Goodison GBR. Guillaume Girod SUI, rank 79 qualified for the Silverfleet, Christian Steiger SUI, Lucien Cujean SUI and Lauri Kalkkinen SUI will continue the event in the Bronze-Fleet. The only Swiss qualifying for the 470 men Goldfleet are Olivier and Adrien Gremaud SUI on rank 52. Matias Bühler/Simon Brügger SUI (rank 64) and Yannick Brauchli/Romuald Hausser SUI (disqualified for pumping yesterday dropping on rank 78) will sail in the Silverfleet as from today. Stéphanie and Romy Hasler, the second boat of the Léman Sailing Team improved their performance again and are now on the 25th position in the 470 women. Emmanuelle Rol/Hélène Defrance FRA/SUI winning the race yesterday have a very strong comeback after the flop on day one due to a broken trapez wire. On position 7 overall now, they are only one point behind their team mates Petitjean/Douroux FRA in the fight for the French Olympic berth. Richard Stauffacher SUI remained on rank 15 with the RS:X-men windsurfers. No improvement however for Nathalie Brugger SUI in the Lasers Radial, but with her 37th place, she qualified for the Goldfleet. Manon Luther SUI on rank 52 missed this objective by a small margin and continues the competition in the Silverfleet, together with the youth sailor Erika Frederikson on rank 65 of the 98 participants. Christoph Christen SUI in the Finns advanced slightly on rank 65, but Ben Ainslie GBR is still far away .... The official report.
