Nacra 17 Worlds 2014 @Santander: Besson-Riou Lead After 9








All Images Jesús Renedo / SailingEnergy.com Full Gallery at fb.com/SailingEnergy | 3 more Races remaining for tomorrow and Sunday the Medal race.
Impressive perfomance by Billy & Marie once again, and also for Lange-Carranza holding 2nd place.
Pity on Aruba van der Velden-Visser and their 3 DNF, they were so close after a good start. Puerto Rico still 1 spot short.

Nice recovery by Waterhouse-Darmanin with a final 1 & 2 for ending the day 5th Overall, leaving Bundock-Curtis as the second Australian team in 8th. Still much to go though.
The Italians Bissaro & Sicouri were 3rd overall but a 30th in the last race put them 4th. Close to GBR & ARG.
Besson & Riou are leading with a good maring of 25pts.


Aruba van der Velden & Visser had 3 'DNF' and their chances to secure their ticket to Rio is harder now, a pity as they were doing an excellent job. Comments by Thijs on their fb page:"We had a really tough day today! An incident at the first top mark of the first race and lost 3 races + protest. On the last race of the day we where first at the top mark, first at the gate, but lost it all in the second lap.
Thanks for every one helping us to get back on the water again! #whatwontkillyoucanonlymakeyoustronger"
