Nacra 17 Miami WC 2019: Day 4 , Medal Race slots defined



All images Sailing Energy / World Sailing. Three more races could be completed today for the Nacra 17 Class at the 2019 Miami Hempel WC 2019. 2018 winners continue to lead in cruising mode, scoring only top tens except an initial 14th. The Australian are finding the right pace and focus to achieve consistency, one of the things they lacked at Rio 2016, of course it was their first Games and 3 years younger, so we are just pointing out how the wonder kids are maturing big time.
We also previewed that they were going to grab Gold some day, a debut with Silver in 2016 was like "yeah, we will get it sooner than later, no worries mate..."!

In second place overall another crew getting in high pace rhythm are the already mentioned this week Albrecht & Nicolino De Sá. two more bullets today to sum 5 wins over 12 races.

Third place after 12 races for the Senior Arg crew, Lange & Carranza also staying below tens but their first race. They are 16pts behind the leaders so it will be a tough path to win the regatta, but as the entire Sailing Worlds know by now , never evver  discard these two Argies.

To close the top ten Majdalani-Bosco had a close fight with Newberry-Liebenberg and Delapierre-Audinet. The last race was decisive for the three crews and the Young Argies scored their best race of the series to secure a spot in the Medal Race this weekend.

Also quite happy to see Sarah Newberry in the top ten, now sailing with David Liebenberg.

One of the fastest crews last four races were Gulari-Chafee, check trackings replays to watch Bora's footing mode upwind which has given him many strategic pass and poisonings. Glad to see Bora & Louisa going fast, they are currently in 7th place.

Medal Race pending, will be broadcasted live, stay tuned for the stream.
