International 470 European Championships
Warnemunde

On a day when 40 knots were expected, Warnemunde turned on a great day of sailing for the 2004 International 470 European Championship.
On a day when 40 knots were expected, Warnemunde turned on a great day of sailing for the 2004 International 470 European Championship. The day started in pouring rain, not uncommon for a northern Summer however the reports of trees being uprooted in Hamburg made for a nervous fleet. But the front brought only 18-23 knots and the 103 470's representing 30 Nations made a great view moving out to the start under kites.

In the men, Nick ROGERS/Joe GLANFIELD were movers of the day with a first in the early race of the day. Nick and Joe employed a novel but extreamly successful starting technique by reaching along behind the Starboard starters until a gap appeared and grabbing the opportunity, from there sailing high out to the favoured righthand side of the course.

CRO 7 Ante CESIC & Ante KUJUNDZIC lead the fleet halfway up the first beat but the American Silver Medallists Paul FOERSTER/Kevin BURNHAM defied odds coming in fast from the lefthand side of the course to round in second place to Rogers/Glandfield.

In the 20 knot conditions, Rogers and Glandfield went onto win convincingly followed by the Americans and the Brits Graham VIALS/Bevis FIELD that moved well through the fleet.

In the Women, the Ward sisters still head the fleet with a reduced lead of 6 points after a day of 19 (Drop), 7 & 7. The American women Katie MCDOWELL/Isabelle KINSOLVING also had a good day with a 6, 6, 4 along with the team from Israel of Kornecki/Bouskila who placed a 2, 10, 5 . The pair of McDowell/ Kinsolving moving up 2 places to be second overall and ISR10 Kornecki/Bouskila moving up 3 places to be 4th overall just behind the Russian pair of Ilienko/Gaponovich in third.

The GBR's Rogers and Glandfield recorded placings of 1, 13 & 6 that moves them from 5th overall to be first place overall going into the last race of the series. But they are just 4 points infront of the Coster Brothers Sven and Kalle of the Nederlands on 62 points after 12 races. The previous overnight leaders Javier CONTE/Juan DE LA FUENTE of Argentina slipped back to third overall but are also on 62 points with true Russian Veteran Dmitri BEREZKIN/Mikhail KRUTIKOV in 4th place just 4 points back.

The Women's fleet will probably have 2 races in the morning while the Men will complete their series with just 1 race. Rogers and Glandfield have drop races of 33 and 30 so their start will be crucial , while the Costers have drops of 16 and 26 . But even the 5th placed Spanish pair of Martinez/Wood are just 8 points back from the overall medals so the field is open for the Championship in both Men's and Women's fleets. .

Racing continues 11.00hrs Thursday with no start permitted after 15.00 hrs.
