 Olympic Worldcup 2012  Hyeres FRA  Day 3  the Swiss
Enjoying his preferred wind conditions, Richard Stauffacher SUI was again among the top-10 in the RS:X-windsurfers yesterday. But the man of the day for Switzerland was Christoph Bottoni SUI with twice a 4th place finish in the Lasers Standard advancing on rank 17 and 12th nation and fulfilling the Swiss Olympic selection criteria for the moment, and this in sailing conditions that were not quite his speciality up to now. Three days are left to make the qualification dream happen. Keep the fingers cross ! Qualified for the Laser Goldfleet is also Christian Steiger SUI as 32nd. Guillaume Girod SUI, 46th, will continue in the Silverfleet. Not on her level sailing was Nathalie Brugger SUI in the Lasers Radial, who was not at ease with the shifty breeze near the coast. 18th overall with a 13 points' backlog on rank 10, she still has a chance to qualify for the Medal Race of next Saturday. With the 39th place, Manon Luther SUI just made the Goldfleet. The development sailor Nigina Römer SUI follows on rank 67 of the 79 participants. Yannick Brauchli/Romuald Hausser SUI lost some ranks yesterday in the 470 men, but on rank 24, their 20 points' gap to the 12th nation place still leaves hope to reach the Swiss Olympic limit. Not in the Goldfleet are Olivier and Adrien Gremaud SUI as 50th. They continue the competition in the Silverfleet. The two women 470s are on the positions 33 (Hasler/Hasler SUI) and 35 (Testuz/Thilo SUI). Emmanuelle Rol SUI/FRA/Hélène Defrance FRA had their best day and advanced on rank 19. The two US-Swiss Starboats are now on the ranks 16 and 17. All ranking lists, the report of the day and the videos.
