RS:X Men’s and Women’s World Championships - average results push sailors down the list

At the RS:X Men’s and Women’s World Championships in Denmark sailors have returned to the water after a mid regatta rest day and sailed two races overnight. Jon-Paul Tobin and Tom Ashley have slipped to fifth and sixth respectively both returning one average race result as the finals rounds got underway.

Just one point separates the kiwis with Tobin on 36 and Ashley on 37. Both now have some ground to make up on the leaders including Dorian van Rijsseberge (NED) out in front with 23 points, Poitr Myszka (POL) on 25 points and Nimrod Mashiah (ISR) on 27 points.
With two more days of racing remaining, tonight will determine the top ten sailors to be on the starting line for the medal race on the final day of the series – September 4th.
