Mc Kee Brothers Continue to Lead

49er World Championship
Malcesine

Early in the morning the second day of the finals started. In the Gold fleet's 5 races no clear leader for the day emerged. However, the consistent good results of the Mc Kee (USA) brothers puts them at the top of the list again.
This world championship of the Olympic 49er class is proving to be quite tough for the 150 crews. The racing area in the north of lake Garda , which has been nicknamed the "wind machine" is, in fact, one of the hardest racing areas in the world. Another 4 races are programmed for tomorrow, which could completely change the final results, since the points are so close.
