Olympic Classes - Test Event - Aarhus DEN - Day 6, Bronze for Roble/Shea USA in 49erFX, more USA and CAN candidates for Medals today

Sunday, August 13, 2017   
Yesterday, the first Medal Races were on the program of the Olympic Classes World Championship Test Event in Aahus DEN with an eclat: The Nacra 17 race was cancelled as the manufacturer called the foiling multihulls back due to safety reasons (see report below). The windsurfers and Olympic skiffs sailed their Medal Races in a 15 kn breeze.
First overall after the three final heats of the 49ers were Benjamin Bildstein/David Hussl AUT with the ranks 1/2/3 ahead of William Philipps/Sam Philipps AUS and David Gilmour/Joel Turner AUS with Silver and Bronze. Chris Rast/Trevor Burd USA on 4th missed a Medal by 2 points only. In the 49ersFX, Jena Hansen/Katja Salskov DEN were the clear winners in front of Ragna Agerup/Maia Agerup NOR. Stephanie Roble/Margaret Shea USA - with a successful change from matchracing to high-performance sailing - advanced on the podium earning Bronze.
In the RS:X men windsurfers, Louis Giard FRA, 2nd in the Medal Race, replaced the leading Pavel Tarnowski POL on rank 1. Kiran Badloe NED won Bronze. Lilian De Geus NED finished first in the RS:X women windsurfers ahead of Marta Maggetti ITA. Flavia Tartaglini ITA, winner of the Medal Race, moved up on rank 3. Without Medal Race ended the Nacra 17 event and the rankings after the qualifications become final with Lin Ea Cenholt/Christian Lübeck DEN as winners ahead of Gemma Jones/Jason Saunders NZL and Annette Viborg/Mathias Borreskov DEN. All other classes will sail their Medal Races today.
Deniz Cinar/Ates Cinar TUR had a perfect day in the 470 men and have a 12 points' lead on Kevin Peponnet/Jérémy Mion FRA before the last race today. Stuart McNay/David Hughes USA and David Bargehr/Lukas Mähr AUT follow closely behind on ranks 3 and 4 and will also fight for Silver and Bronze today. Linda Fahrni/Maja Siegenthaler SUI extended their lead in the 470 women to 7 points on Agnieszka Skrzypulec/Irmina Mrozek POL.
