Olympic Classes – Trofeo Princesa Sofia – Palma ESP – Day 4 – US Sailing Team 49ersFX, Lasers Standard and Radial and … surprise … the RS:X windsurfers in top-10s,

Again seven US Sailing Team members in the top-10 (+ 2) of the Trofeo Princesa Sofia after yesterdays races, i.e. in the 49ersFX, the Lasers Standard and Radial and … surprise … the RS:X windsurfers, replacing the 49er and Nacra teams. Both USA Laser Standard helmsmen remained in the top-10. The Goldfleet ranks made the difference yesterday with Christopher Barnard finishing 6 and 6 moving up on the excellent 3rd, and Charlie Buckingham with 32 and 20 leaving him on 8th. Similar situation in the Lasers Radial. Erika Reineke USA advanced on rank 3 as well with the day ranks 6 and 9, while Paige Railey USA is on 8th with a race win and a retired race. In the 49ersFX, Paris Henken/Anna Tunnicliffe Tobias are back in the top-10 (rank 9) with a 3rd and 7th place as well as an early start disqualification. Stephanie Roble/Margaret Shea USA however could not keep the pace of the best and with three times 17th, they are down on 16th overall. The positive surprise of the day are the 10th overall positions in the RS:X windsurfers of Farrah Hall (women) and Pedro Pascal Suitt (men).A premature start and the ranks 3 and 10 were not good enough for Andrew Mollerus/Ian MacDiarmid USA to keep the top-10 place. Down on rank 12 with a 3-point deficit on the rank 10 cut, they have a good chance to reach the Medal Race. Also 3 points behind a Medal Race position are Riley Gibbs/Anna Weiss USA as 11th in the Nacra-17 after a premature start disqualification and the ranks 19 and 5 yesterday.Please find hereafter all results of the North American participants (CAN/MEX/PUR/USA):470 men (75 boats, 6 races): 41th Stuart McNay/David Hughes USA 470 women (46 boats, 6 races): 21st Nikole Barnes/Lara Dallman-Weiss USA, 24th Carmen Emma Cowles USA, 39th Atlantic Nora Brugman Cabot USA, 45th Kathleen Tocke/Charlie Bess USA49er (108 boats, 6 races): 12th Andrew Mollerus/Ian MacDiarmid USA, 32th Harry Melges/Finn Rowe USA, 37th Judge Ryan/Hans Henken USA, 41st Nevin Snow/Dane Wilson USA, 46th William Jones/Evan Depaul CAN, 58th Ian Barrows/Joseph Kiss USA, 49erFX (66 boats, 9 races): 9th Paris Henken/Anna Tunnicliffe Tobias USA, 16th Stephanie Roble/Magaret Shea USA, 35th Kate Shaner/Charlotte Mack USA, 39th Alexandra Ten Hove/Mariah Millen CANFinn (89 boats, 6 races): 29th Caleb Paine USA, 39th Kyle Martin CAN, 42nd Tom Ramshaw CAN, 44th Luke Muller, 59th Eric Anderson USA, 77th Jack Jennings USALaser Standard (198 boats, 6 races): 3rd Christopher Barnard USA, 8th Charlie Buckingham USA, 41st Robert Davis CAN, 48th Malcolm Lamphere USA, 49th Luke Ruittenberg CAN, 54th Marek Zaleski USA, 59th Pedro Luis Fernandez Gamboa PUR, 94th Justin Norton CAN, 104th Yanic Gentry MEX, 126th Hugh MacRea CAN, 130th Forrest Wachholz CAN, 132nd Paul Didham USA, 157th Juan Ignacio Perez Soltero MEX,164th Norman Struthers CANLaser Radial (123 boats, 6 races): 3rd Erika Reineke USA, 8th Paige Railey USA, 44th Maura Dewey CAN, 45th Sarah Douglas CAN, 64th Lillian Myers USA, 66th Clara Gravely CAN, 74th Christina Sakellaris USA, 69th Coralie Vittecoq CAN, 86th Hanne Weaver USANacra-17 (60 boats: 9 races): 11th Riley Gibbs/Anna Weis USA, 27th Bora Gulari/Louisa Chafee USA, 31st Ravi Parent/Caroline Atwood USA, 38th Sarah Newberry/David Liebenberg USA, 47th Enrique Figueroa/Gretchen Ortiz PUR, 49th Allie Surrette/Max Flinn CAN RS:X men (69 boards, 6 races): 10th Pedro Pascal Suitt USA, 19th Ignacio Berenguer MEXRS:X women (57 boards, 6 races): 10th Farrah Hall, 14th Cristina Ortiz Vivas MEX, 24th Mariana Aguilar MEX, 37th Carolina Mendelblatt USAAnd here the overall daily summary after day one:Yesterday, sailing on Palma Bay continued in most classes with the Final Series split in Gold- and Silverfleets, and the seabreeze was somewhat stronger (12-14kn) as during the previous days.
