Original story...

More good weather at the Practical Flying Dutchman World Championship in Balatonföldvár, Hungary saw Jörgen and Jacob BOYSEN-MOELLER (DEN) extend their lead at the top. Another slip up by defending champions Szabolcs MAJTHÉNYI and András DOMOKOS (HUN) means the Danes already have one hand on the World trophy.

Even if MAJTHÉNYI and DOMOKOS win today's final race, the BOYSEN-MOELLER brothers will secure the Championship with a top ten finish.

Yesterday a strong wind of twelve to 20 knots from the northwest with warm sunshine once again provided the sailors with near perfect conditions. The BOYSEN-MOELLER brothers scored a clear win in the day's opening race whilst MAJTHÉNYI and DOMOKOS had a disaster, getting on the wrong side on the first leg and capsizing on the downward leg to eventually finish 35th.

However the four-time World Champions are made of stern stuff and they gave themselves a slim chance of victory today with a bullet in the following race. However it looks more likely that they will be facing a tight fight for the silver medal with the Australian team of Norman RYDGE and Richard SCARR just one point behind them.
