Day 3 of racing started light but the wind did not let the sailors down for Race 6

Tornado World Championship - Day 3 of racing started light but the wind did not let the sailors down for Race 6
LA ROCHELLE, FRANCE-(16-6-2005) The nice sailing condition the Tornados enjoyed on Tuesday did not repeat itself yesterday. Race 5 started with delay, light winds and average of  7 knots. AUT Roman Hagara and Hans-Peter Steinacher, Gold medalists in Athens and Sydney, lead the race from start to finish.

FRA Xavier Revil and Christophe Espagnon and ESP Fernando Echavarri and Anton Paz fought hard for the second place for the whole race. And the Spanish got it. Echavarri and Paz are having a very good season – they won SPA Regatta and Barcelona Olympic Week and are sailing very consistently this event. They are currently leading the event.

Race 6 had much better conditions as the wind picked up to 14 knots. The fight this time was between GRE Iordanis Paschalides/Konstantinos Trigonis and FRA Yann Guichard/Alexandre Guyader. The team from La Rochelle Guichard and Guyader took the gun.

The only female skipper in this event, Carolijn Brouwer, experienced Europe class sailor and 1998 ISAF sailor of the Year, and crew Sebastien Godefroid, Silver medalist in Savannah, are enjoying better results as the event progresses.

“We are finally waking up! We are sailing better tactically and having better starts and that comes with experience. The more we sail the more tuned up we get”, says Carolijn.

After 6 races completed the sailors can now discard their worst result.

The SRR, organizers of the event, offered a Gala Dinner for all the sailors last night. Today no races are scheduled as it is the lay-day. The Tornados will be back on the water on Friday for 2 more races.
