International One Metre World Championship 2007
Marseille, France

After 12 races in Marseille, Britain?s Martin ROBERTS leads the International One Metre Worlds.
Australians Brad GIBSON and Craig SMITH lie in second and third place after three days of racing.

On Tuesday the wind came from a northeasterly direction, but with shifts, at around 8-12 knots. Skippers remain generally courteous; there were a few protests on Monday which led to delays but both Race Committee and skippers seem to be getting into a groove.

Martin ROBERTS has posted four bullets in the 12 races so far and leads by three points from GIBSON. SMITH is a further ten points back just ahead of Guillaume FLORENT (FRA) and Guillermo BELTRI (ESP).

Seventy six skippers from 24 nations are competing in France, demonstrating the popularity of this Radio Sailing class.
