F18 Worlds 2014 @Ireland: Day 4, Larsen-van West regain Lead

Image: Jasper van Staveren. With Two discards now in play and after 12 races, Gunnar Larsen & Fer van West are leading by 4 pts over Reiss-Whitehead who were leading up to the 11th.
Light weather racing today, in contrast of yesterday's 20knots. 

Gunnar scored today 5,9 and a bullet by miles that gave him and Fer the lead overall, responding to the Youth attack. The US talented kids 3,4 and a 13th (worst results so far) that ended as their second discard.

Ashby & Goodall return to race and 8,1,6. Yesterady they had to repair the port hull and missed 4 races, that in the end it could be too much loss and one of the reasons the As have 2 races per day.
I think to keep it fair in the F18 for all levels and ages a maximum of 3 x days should be Ok.
After the two leaders, the French fleet is pressing for podium places lead by current Nat Champs Bontempts-Amiot, Carnac Long Distance winners, Lagraviere-Jarlegan  and followed by 3 Junior skippers : Tim Mourniac, Robert Solune & Lois Berrehar.

BEL Patrick Demesmaeker and ARG Rodger are currently 7th & 9th respectively and the top ten closes with the sixth FRA flag with Emeric Dary & David Fanoulliere.
