News / Thailand Preworlds Overall

27 March 2014

It was all up to play for on the final day of the pre worlds with three points separating first and second. 

Ther best breeze so far presented itself - averaging around 14 knots. The pumping flag was up and everyone was keen to get going. everyone except for a few of the Aussies who after a bit of a dodgy meal were staying on shore close to the amenities.

Ben and Doug showed the same form as the last race yesterday powering off the line to lead at the top mark closely followed by Christian and Sam then Nathan and Sam.

Ben and Christian changed places three times over the next lap with Ben leading up the second beat and Christian up the third.  Going into the final gybe they we dead even parking up and letting Nathan close in with Greg close behind. 

Christian managed to hold on just over Nathan while Ben got spat out after an untidy gybe allowing Greg to get through to third.

Christian and Sam finally won a race after having previously needing to retire from two races for over pumping and getting arrested two nights ago. It seems their ability to play within the rules both on the water and off are slowly getting better.

Ben and Christian were worn out after their battle in race one so headed to the beach for a rest leaving Nathan and Sam to close out the regatta. In the stronger breezes they maintained superior speed to Heather and Chris. They achieved a comformtable win with Greg and Allen second and Heather and Chris rounding out the top three.

This means that Nathan and Sam walk away as winners of the preworlds with Heather and Chris Second then Ben and Doug third.

Now the fleet gets to relax for two days before the main event begins on Sunday.
