African Optimist Championship 2005
Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania
With three Danish competitors taking the top spots, two of them female sailors this championship the competition seems to be sewn up.
With twelve of the scheduled fifteen races sailed the visiting Danes are showing their greater experience and occupy the first three places. But the African closed championship itself is becoming quite exciting with sailors from five of the eight African countries now in the top ten.
Ahmed RAGAB of Egypt still leads but the two Algerians, Wassim ZIANI and Amine MIDOUM (who had two bullets today) are still in contention.
