ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères
26 Apr 15
The fan was turned up for the final day at ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères as an exciting finale played out across two racing areas.
"A very well organized event" Andreadis said at the end of the day "it is important for sailing in Italy to have races in different venues from the usual ones. It is a very tough championship with so many good sailors, world and olympic champions".
In a warm summer day, once again a westerly wind blew over the race area allowing two more races to be completed with about 8 knots for the first race, 12 knots dropping to 6 knots by the end of the day.
In the first race of the day, James Howells (USA) crossed the fiinishing line in first position, anyway the American Marvin Beckmann in still the leader of the overall results. European Champion Ante Razmilovich is now second overall tie on points with Andreadis.
Racing resumes on Friday at 12:00 local time.
1. The Martian (USA) - Marvin Beckmann - 24pts
2. Swedish Blue (HKG) - Ante Razmilovic - 40pts
3. Efyra III (GRE) - George Andreadis - 40pts
