Star - World Championship 2012 - Hyères FRA - Day 4

Wednesday, May 9, 2012   (Image © Pierrick Contin)
The fresh breeze of Monday was replaced by a moderate steady Easterly wind yesterday. The fleet was very quickly spread over a large area with some of the title favorites and candidates for Olymic berths finally on less comfortable positions, such as Lööf/Salminen SWE (now rank 15) or Negri/Voltolini ITA, superior European Champion last year and now after another abandonement (again after a collision), down on rank 52. For the very first time, Italy will not be represented at the forthcoming Olympic Starboat Regatta ! Ian Percy/Andrew Simpson GBR extended their overall lead with another victory on 10 points thanks to an exceptional downwind speed. Scheidt/Prada BRA and a point behind O'Leary/Burrows IRL are on the remaining podiums' seats. The best cards for an Olympic berth have Hestbaek/Oleson DEN (8th), Pepper/Turner NZL (9th), Arapov/Miclicic CRO (10th) and Spitzauer/Habermüller AUT (11th). Four points further back lie Papathanassiou/Tsotras GRE in wait for a mistake by their opponents. The results, the report and the video of the day.
