PRESS RELEASE – Thursday 26  August 2010

Day 4 of the Dart 18 Catamaran World Championships at Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy looked to be another strong wind day of racing.  However, despite strong winds for the early racing, the wind moderated which made for some good racing with 3 races being completed.  This was good news for the Race Officer as with 6 races now sailed it gives the mandatory 4 races required for a World Championships.  With 6 races sailed there are 5 to count so many sailors were pleased to be able to discard their worst result.

The young team of Tom Phipps and Richard Glover put in a consistent  performance in all 3 races, scoring a 1st, 2nd and 3rd.  There was relief for the French Team of Emmanuel Dode and Fred Moreau and British sailors, Phipps and Glover as they were both able to discard Race 1 when they were disqualified for being over the line when the Black Flag was flying.   Overnight leaders of David Lloyd and Joanna Jones-Pierce dropped to 3rd place overall.  Frustrating  for Lloyd who is due a Worlds’ win after 11 times of trying.

Tomorrow is sure to bring some exciting final day racing:  with Dode & Moreau and Phipps& Glover fighting it out for the World Championship  title with the French team having edged in to the lead with an overnight 2 point lead.

Overall Results after 6 races

  • 1st Emmanuel Dode and Fred Moreau
  • 2nd Tom Phipps and Richard Glover
  • 3rd David Lloyd and Joanna Jones-Pierce
