Worlds Day 3

 

Lighter winds made no difference to Chips Howarth and Vyv Townend from Great Britain as they continued to dominate the 2010 Fireball Worlds. Two races were held today off Carlisle Bay in Barbados at the 2010 Fireball World Championships.  There were a few small showers and otherwise mostly sunny skies with winds at 12-14 knots throughout the day.

Fellow Brits, Matt Findlay and Richard Anderton  kept it a closer finish for Race 5 battling through to the finish with Howarth and Townend, but then Chips and Vyv pulled away from the fleet to finish well ahead in Race 6.

After 6 races, Matt Burge and Richard Wagstaff (GBR) are in 2nd place, followed by Matt Findlay and Richard Anderton (GBR).  Boats with sail numbers not starting with GBR still haven’t managed to crack the overall podium, but they are starting to reach the top three spots in individual races with Australian boats claiming 2nd and 3rd in Race 6.

Complete results are available here.

Wednesday, May 5 is a lay day.  Racing continues on Thursday, May 6 with two races scheduled.
