Replay from first day of Gold Fleet

John Gimson and Anna Burnet foiled to the front of the Nacra 17 fleet after a solid start to the gold fleet finals with scores of 1,6,2. “We’ve finally found some downwind wheels,” said Gimson. “The speed is good and we’ve learned a lot about the right technique for those conditions.” Burnet said things could change significantly now that the wind is dropping lighter for the final three days. “We still hope to be fast whatever the conditions, but a change of breeze could suit some of the other teams and change things around a bit.”

The best performers of the day were the Danish crew of Lin Cenholt and CP Lubeck, whose scores of 2,3,1 have launched them into second overall, just one point off the lead and two points ahead of the previous regatta leaders from Italy. Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti scored 4,10,3 for a still very solid – if unspectacular – day out in the waves of Weymouth Bay. There’s 12-point gap back to the other top Italians in fourth place, Vittorio Bissaro and Maelle Frascari, who made amends with a first-race 15th by following up with a race win and a 4th.

The Argentinean crew, Mateo Majdalani and Eugenia Bosco, remain in podium contention in 5th overall. Ben Saxton and Nikki Boniface have been glued into sixth place for some time now, and will rue the missed opportunity to climb up the leaderboard after a mishap at the end of the first race today. “We were gybing for the finish, in the lead, and I jumped out of the boat,” said Saxton self-mockingly, always able to smile at any situation. “Just as well as I’ve been working on my swimming because I caught the boat up while Nikki was trying to sort out the mess.” They still salvaged a 12th across the finish line, getting the boat upright quickly but still disappointed to have made the error in the first place. 

With the wind set to drop lighter from Friday onwards, the Nacras have perhaps had the best of the foiling conditions, and it could be back to low-riding for the remaining days of the Europeans.
