Med tre tjejer i fyrmannalaget vann idag Singapore lagseglingsdelen i Optimist VM. I Finalen slog man Peru som i semifinalen slog ut förra årets vinnare, Thailand. Svenskarna började dagen med att knappt förlora mot Malaysia för att sen klart slå Portugal. I "kvartsfinalen" ställdes man mot USA som tyvärr blev ett nummer för stort.

Imorgon är det vilodag för optimisterna och sen börjar fleetracingen igen.

 

The second day of teams racing started with a glorious sunny day, 16 teams and 32 races ahead. 

The 2010 World Champion, Thailand, sailed their first race against Poland. Thailand sailed a strong competition and made it through to the semi finals but lost against Peru.

Peru who had beaten the Netherlands 10 to 26 in the quarter finals, had a lot of onshore supporters. 

"This weather really brings out the crowds, and it is fantastic to see the support for all these young sailors" says Nigel Rippey, Event Director.

The wind decided to play games with the sailors, and changed direction half way through the morning which meant a new course had to be set. 

Singapore had won all their races and therefore qualified after 4 races, while Peru had to sail 6 races to the final.

The final sail off consist of three races. Both Singapore and Peru qualified by beating reigning Champion Thailand. The Singaporean team was sailing today with three females and one male, a team has only four sailors. Peru had high hopes, with Javier Arribas currently in third position in the individual racing.

Singapore won the first race with 13 over 23. The second race saw a draw 18 all, but with Singapore finishing first, the win went to Peru. The third all deciding race went to Singapore with a well deserved win.

During tomorrow's Lay Day all 210 competitors and their supporters will enjoy a variety of tours, activities and beach days with a bit of Kiwiana. The individual racing continues with race 7 this Saturday. 

The provisional leader board (for the individual racing) shows: 1 Ryan Lo (SIN) 14 points, 2 Bart Lambriex (NED) 23 points, 3 Javier Arribas (PER) 25 points, 4 Wade Waddell (USA) 32 points, 5 Leonard Takahashi-Fry (NZL) 33 points, 6 Peter Lin Janezic (SLO) 40 points, 7 Philip Meijer (NED) 41 points, 8 Ahmad Syukri Abdul Aziz (MAS) 41, 9 William Marshall (USA) 44 points, 10 Miel Verstraete (BEL) 44 points.
