505 World Championship 2005
Warnemunde, Germany

Two-time World Champions Wolfgang HUNGER and Holger JESS (GER) made a big step towards their third title in the CSC 505 Worlds in Warnemünde yesterday.
In medium Northwesterly winds, they hit two bullets while some of their fiercest competitors made their biggest mistakes. Christian KELLNER and Klaus STAMMERJOHANN (GER) and Mike MARTIN and Jesse FALSONE (USA) lost their chances for the title today with a 50 and a 31 respectively place in the race five.

Mark IVEY and Shane ILLIDGE (USA) defended their second place with two more top ten finishes. Jan SAUGMANN and Morten RAMSBAEK (DEN) kept on gaining with a fourth and a second place. Both teams are 20 points behind the leaders, and can do littel but hang in there and hope that HUNGER and JESS might make a mistake. The battle is really on for the final two podium spots with four teams within seven points of each other.

Two races are scheduled for Thursday, the last race is to be held on Friday.
