International Moth World Championship
Les Sables d'Olonne

Heats 3 and 4 were sailed on Tuesday afternoon in a good 15 to 20 knot North-West wind. Rohan VEAL (AUS) and Mark ROBINSON (AUS) started well, but were quickly caught by Mark THORPE (AUS) and Les THORPE (AUS).
Mark & Les led for the remainder of the race, with Mark crossing the finish line first before Les THORPE and Ian FORDSIKE. The first French sailor to finish was Jean-Jacques CHARPENTIER, 28 position in the 37 boat fleet.

The wind and swell were very good for Rohan VEAL in the second heat of the day for him to use his dagger board mounted foils to their ultimate. The show on the water was absolutely fabulous and Rohan finished first, 4 minutes before the second boat.

After a protest yesterday, Rohan VEAL has been disqualified for the first race of the event race. Patrick RUF (SUI) is now 3rd of that race and also third in the overall results. Mark Thorpe is first and Les second.

Full results are available on the event website at the address below.
