Soling Worlds
Rounding the mark in front

Soling World Championship
Lake Michigan, USA

Canada's Peter Hall has taken a commanding lead at the Soling World Championship on Lake Michigan, USA by winning four of six races.
Hall, with crew Paul Davis and William Hall have been rampant and hold an eight point lead. On the second day of the championship three races took place in a shifterly westerly breeze with plenty of cloud cover.

In Race 4 Hall did a great job to the left rounding the mark first right followed by Matias Collins (USA) and behind a pack including Philip Smith (AUS), Billy Abbott (CAN) and George Wossala (HUN). The left side paid big but the downwind was not ideal for some, Hall was able to increase his lead to take the bullet.

The wind increased in Race 5 Nelson Ilha (BRA) stole the lead from Abbott on the first downwind. The Brazilian held the lead until the end whilst Canada's Hall maintained his consistent start with a second place.

A dying wind in Race 6 saw the right hand side of the course pay off big and once more Hall continued his fantastic start to take another bullet.
