Laser Radial - World Championship 2016 - Dun Laoghaire IRL - Day 2

The fickle 5-15 kn winds from the shore persisted also on day 2 of the Laser Radial Worlds in Ireland, and again, only part of the races could be completed.
The Radial Men sailed one race and the new leader is Martin Lowy BRA ahead of the tied Ricardo Luz BRA and Nik Pletikos SLO on rank 2. Only two of the four groups in the huge Laser Radial Youth Boys finished a race. The ranking list is therefore not representative. Arthur Barrué FRA takes the lead for the moment 6 points ahead of Pantelis Kirpoglou GRE as 2nd. But down in the rankings follow the best of the non-sailing groups with Henry Marshall USA superior winner of the two races he sailed so far on rank 29. The Radial Youth Girls returned ashore with nothing but a few starting attempts. After the only race sailed on the opening day, the leader remains Caroline Rosmo NOR followed by Alexandra Dahlberg FIN and Zoe Thomson AUS.
