Medium winds at second day of racing at Delphis Dart 18 Worlds 2011

Today saw medium winds with a lumpy sea at the Delphis Dart 18 World Championships at Knokke Belgium. The first race got away on the first attempt as the tide was holding the fleet back from the line. Emmanuel Dode and Fred Moreau (FRA) had a good start and led from start to finish. Thierry and Christine Wibaux (FRA) where hard on there heels with Herve le Maux and Tory Hackman (FRA/GBR) taking third.

Race 2 of the day got away with a bit more wind. Most of the fleet tacked out to sea as soon as possible to try and benefit from the tide. The team of Dode and Moreau rounded the windward mark first but were soon overtaken by Alan and Fiona Kernick(GBR) who led till the end of the race. Team Le Maux and Hackman finish second with Dode and Moreau third.

This leaves the top three boats all very close after 4 races:
1. Emmanuel Dodé – Fred Moreau (FRA), 11 pts.
2. Alan Kernick – Fiona Kernick (GBR), 13 pts.
3. Thierry Wibeaux – Christine Wibeaux (FRA), 13 pts.
