Mumm 30 World Championship 2005
Trinité-sur-Mer, Brittany, France

On day three of racing at the Mumm 30 World Championship in Trinité-sur-Mer, France there have been major changes at the top of the leaderboard with Fabien HENRY (FRA) moving into the top spot.
The British entry Asterix, skippered by Louis BROWNE had been dominating the regatta after taking a second place and a bullet on day two. Overnight he led by an impressive 15 points from Michele PERRIS (MON) and Dangerous But Fun, with HENRY, on Toulon Provence Mediterranee Coych, a further four points back.

After two days of delayed racing when the sea breeze did not pick up until the afternoon the 40 Mumm 30s contesting the event have currently completed two races today. The day began in average fashion for BROWNE who finished tenth in the first race of the day, race six of the championship. HENRY finished second behind Herve LEDUC (FRA) on Tobago, to move up the leaderboard thanks to PERRIS flopping to 25.

Race seven has seen a dramatic change on the leaderboard, with 14 boats gaining penalties including Asterix and Dangerous But Fun. The 41 score sees the Brit drop to third place, 26 points behind HENRY, who finished race seven in fourth. Meanwhile PERRIS falls even further to ninth. Pierre Loic BERTHET (FRA) skippering Bouygues Telecom took the bullet in race seven to move within eight points of HENRY in second place.

2004 World Champion, Richard PERINI (AUS), skippering Foreign Affair, has again had a very inconsistent day falling to 29 in race six and then making up for it somewhat with a third in race seven. The Australian currently lies eighth and it is looking increasingly unlikely he will be able to add the 2005 Mumm 30 World Championship title to the Farr 40 one he won earlier in the year in Sydney, Australia.
