Laser Radial World Championships
Vilanova

Day 4 saw yet another different wind direction. This time dawn broke with the Levente wind from the east blowing 22 knot winds producing 1 metre high waves. There are four more races to go in the Championships.
By the time of the start the wind had moderated to 11 knots with a leftover sea. New Zealander, Michael Bullot, was clearly at home in these conditions winning both his group races to bring him into overall contention just 2 points behind the leading four and without a bad discard. Andre Streppel BRA has a similar consistent set of results after a second and a first. He said "My first race was not so easy but in the second race I managed to get past Anders Nyholm. I liked the big waves even though we do not see waves like this in my home waters in Porte Allegre."

After 6 races in the Round Robin series 4 sailors are tied for first place and 3 continents are represented top 5 of the male fleet. With a discard now in effect both Anders Nyholm from Denmark and Orkun Soyer from Turkey were able to drop a bad result and close on defending champion Fredrik Lassenius SWE who posted a first and second place in his group. Streppel is the fourth tied leader.

Having previously scored no worse than third sixth place Andreas Rallotos from Greece lost his chance of joining the leaders following disqualification after a port and starboard incident in the 6th race.

The fleet is now split into Gold, Silver and Bronze fleets for the remaining 4 races to be held on Thursday and Friday. This will be the first time all the leading boats sail "head to head". They carry forward their Round Robin results to the final series. Lassenius, Streppel and Bullot have the comfort of knowing that they are currently discarding 3rd and 4th places.

In the Women's fleet Italian Larissa Nevierov scored a solid 1,2 to give her the overall lead while others had a mixed set of results. This included defending champion Katarzyna Szotynski POL who scored her worst result of the series, an eighth, after leading Nevierov home in the first race of the day.

The women also have 4 more races to sail.
