SAILING: SolId starts for Dempsey and Shaw
1:52pm Wednesday 11th September 2013 in Sport
RAIN and light winds stopped play at the Santander City Trophy yesterday, with no fleets able to complete their scheduled day’s racing at the 2014 Sailing World Championship venue.
British Sailing Team crews saw some racing action on what was the first day for the Nacra 17 multihull event and the RS:X men’s and women’s windsurfers, with one race apiece at this test event for the 2014 ISAF Worlds, but there was frustration for the 470 women’s fleet whose sole race was abandoned on the final leg.
Nacra 17 world silver medallists Ben Saxton and Hannah Diamond won the only race of the day for the catamaran class amid some testing conditions.
There was no racing in the 470 Men’s fleet, which Portland’s Luke Patience and Joe Glanfield lead after two races, while Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark were in charge and on the final run of the 470 Women’s race today when race officials called it off.
Racing continues at the Santander City Trophy today, with the Laser and Laser Radial classes starting tomorrow.
Medal races are scheduled to take place for the 470 Men, 470 Women and Finn classes on Saturday, with medal races for all other classes on Sunday.
