Belen Tavella and Franco Greggi (pictured above), continued their winning ways by being first across the finish line in 2 of the 3 races for the day.  Rivals in the series continue to be Pepe Bettini and Fernando Gwozdz who remain 2 points behind in second, but who also won a race for the day.

The showdown on the water proved that Tavella and Greggi are a touch faster and so far have managed to remain leaders despite the high winds and waves that have challenged most of the fleet. Racing continues on Friday, January 7 with two more days of the final series. The prizegiving will be held on Saturday, January 8.  Photos provided by photographer Matias Capizzano, www.capizzano.com.  Live reports and daily results: www.29erworlds.org; Facebook: 29er Worlds 2011 and Int 29er Class.
