How's it going in Geelong?
Two racing days behind at the world championships in the Olympic classes 49er, 49erFX and Nacra17. The regatta takes place in the Australian city of Geelong.
In the 49er class, they are the leaders (I would like to clarify: they are leading as always …) the most titled racers of our time – New Zealanders Peter Burling and Blair Tuke. In the six qualification races held, they came first four times (!) – and now they have 7 points (with one throw).
The Austrians Benjamin Bildstein and David Hussl are two points behind.
Detailed Results –
In the other two classes, the situations are similar, since the British crews are the leaders in both places – (49erFX) Charlotte Dobson / Saskia Tidey (9 points after six races with one throw) and (Nacra17) John Gimson / Anna Burnett (14 points after six races at one surge).
By the way, according to the forecasts of the leaders of the British Olympic team, the British can win 5 or even 6 medals at the Games in Tokyo. It remains for us to quietly envy aside.
P.S. Russian yachtsmen in the championship, which takes place in Geelong, alas, do not take part.
