Another day with no wind at Laser Worlds in Canada

Day 5 of the Laser Standard Men’s World Championships. The winds were light today and not enough for world championship racing. Forecast is looking better for tomorrow and three races are scheduled.

The 158 competitors from 63 nations have been split into Gold, Silver and Bronze flights based on their results in the qualifying series. Gold and Silver have 53 sailors in each flight, and bronze 52. Regatta leaders, Philipp Buhl, Germany, and Great Britain’s Nick Thompson are tied at 21 points. Buhl is listed as number one, as he has better individual racing scores than Thompson. Previous leader Juan Ignacio Maegli representing Guatemala sits third, with 26 points. Australia’s Tom Burton is 4th, and Lorenzo Brando Chiavarini of Great Britain 5th. Bruno Fontes BRA, Elliot Hanson GBR, Sam Meech NZl and Christopher Barnard USA sit 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th respectively, with only 3 points separating the four positions. With only two days of final series, the racing is sure to be intense and action packed!
