ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères Reaches Critical Stage

RSXHyeres2014 2ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères reached a critical stage with a fourth day that included near disaster, small margins of error and hard fought battles across the ten Olympic and two Paralympic events.

Over 1,100 sailors are competing at the fifth and final stage of the 2013-2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup series and it was long day out on the water with the last race concluding at 20:01 local time. Following a delayed start to the day a shifty 10-12 knot westerly breeze tested the sailors' and the race committees.

Poland's Maja Dziarnowska advanced in to pole position following double bullets in the 59-boat fleet of RS:X Women. She opened her day with an eighth as her second and third race victories of the week flowed in. As she takes the lead she has Germany's Moana Delle for company who is a point behind following a 2-3-2 score line.
Overnight leader Jiahui Wu dropped to third. A less than convincing day for the Chinese racer saw her struggle in the shifty breeze. She picked up a 13th, a discarded 19th and a fourth.

Results RS:X Women

Piotr Myszka (POL) continues to lead following a 1-4-3 score line but the young Polish sailor Pawel Tarnowski and Dutchman Kiran Badloe continue to impress. The young guns lead the likes of London 2012 Olympic gold medallist Dorian van Rijsselberge (NED) who is fourth, bronze medallist Przemyslaw Miarczynski (POL) who is fifth and silver medallist Nick Dempsey (GBR) who is eighth.
Tarnowski is second on 45 points whilst Badloe is third on 50 points. Badloe is five points ahead of compatriot Van Rijsselberge,

Pierre le Coq and Charline Picon have sailed to victory at the ISAF Sailing World Cup Mallorca, in Spain

pierrelecoqPierre Le Coq fended off a final assault from race winner Byron Kokkalanis. The Greek was devastatingly quick on the final downwind as he used every last ounce of strength he had left. But the French secured first place.

"The medal race was really close and we were fighting a lot with all the other guys. The positions were close right up until the last downwind so it was a nice fight. I didn't have a very good start but I used my speed and came back up so I kept my first place," says Le Coq.

Bronze went the way of Louis Giard, who finished the medal race in third.

In the Women's RS:X division, Charline Picon came into the medal race with an unassailable 42 point lead. With gold wrapped up the pressure was off the French sailor, and she enjoyed the last race of the regatta, coming in third.

"I'm very happy with the whole competition because I was very consistent. My worst race was ninth. We had all conditions here with planing, no wind and pumping, and I'm happy with my work in the winter," adds Picon.

The fight for the remaining podium spots was on with any one of Lilian De Geus, Blanca Manchon, Bryony Shaw and Flavia Tartaglini, in with a shout of the medals.

De Geus was the leading sailor of the four going into the Medal Race and managed to hold on to second overall. Manchon narrowly finished behind De Geus with bronze going her way.

Greece's Skarlatou Gets Back On The Trail In Mallorca

Sailing2012 M5682XSGreek Women's RS:X sailor Angeliki Skarlatou has been a regular on the Olympic circuit since July 1994 and after a post London 2012 break she's getting back to business.

With the Santander 2014 ISAF Worlds approaching fast Skarlatou is using ISAF Sailing World Cup Mallorca - Trofeo Princesa Sofia as her comeback regatta as she aims to reach her fourth Olympic Games.

"I needed at least a year off RS:X after London 2012 and I focused on my work as a personal trainer in Athens," commented Skarlatou.

"I competed in a PWA Slalom event and in the Formula windsurfing class finishing second at the Worlds in Croatia 2013 but my mind was always on another campaign, this time Rio and I decided that Mallorca 2014 was a good time to start racing."
