International Moth World Championship
Les Sables d'Olonne

There was only been one race on Wednesday due to the lack of wind which was a light breeze of 3 to 4 knots. With no swell either, the conditions were totally different from the ones at the beginning of the week.
However, it was interesting to see the different performances as the the skippers that prefer sailing in light winds have shown what they can do!

Frédéric DUVOISIN (FRA) had the best start in front of Rohan VEAL (AUS), Mark ROBINSON (AUS) and Ian FORDSIKE (GBR). Duvoisin managed to stay first and led the whole (so slow!) fleet during the race.

It took a good hour to complete the heat. Frédéric Duvoisin crossed the line first, in front of Patrick RUF (SUI) and Martin HARRISON (GBR). Mark Thorpe finished 5, to place his worst result of the series.

Today, Thursday, is a layday for everyone.
