 470, Finn, Laser, RS:X, Star  ISAF Worlds 2011  Perth AUS  the Swiss
The last four Medal Races today Sunday are run without Swiss. Apparently, the Swiss teams are not yet able to achieve top results in a fresher breeze, but nevertheless, they secured the Olympic nations' berths in the classes 470-M, Laser Radial, Laser Standard, RS:X-M and Star. The Swiss Olympic selection limit - 12th nation - was only reached by Nathalie Brugger SUI and Flavio Marazzi SUI. The direct selection - a 5th place - was out of reach, and the selection process continues according to the regulations. The only Swiss National Team class without an Olympic ticket are the 470 women, but there remains a second chance for Stéphanie and Romy Hasler SUI or another women's team at the World Championship 2012.
The performance of the Swiss Team was solid, and Yannick Brauchli/Romuald Hausser SUI even succeeded to exceed their best performance so far during a top competition. The continuous progress made by Guillaume Girod was impressive, and finishing 51st overall, he secured the Laser nations' berth for Switzerland. Higher expectation had – without doubt - Nathalie Brugger SUI and Marazzi/De Maria, but they had to realize, that the top boats in their classes sail in a different league these days. Much to do in the remaining 9 months to the Olympics 2012 ! All results.
