2008 RS:X Youth World Championships: Day 5/R10-Boys

Piotr Myzskowski (POL 4) was lying 4th overall last night, 12 points away from the top spot. He took the ‘up’ elevator in Race 9 to lead the fleet overall. In Race 10, he consolidated that position by taking second place and a three point lead overall. The medal race tomorrow counts double points so he cannot relax yet!

Ludomil Sowacki (POL 200) won race 10 and climbs to 7th overall. The drama is now off the water. He is trying everything he can to re-open the hearing on his claim for redress on Race 3 in which he did well. If successfull, he would be catapulted into a chance of a podium position. ‘If’ is only a two letter word but in this case a very big one. His chances are slim!

Leung Ho Tsun (HKG2), the overnight leader, made a slip in race 9 finishing 17th. He made amends in race 10 by claiming 3rd. Now 2nd overall, he will be out to unsettle Piotr tomorrow and claim the title. Something he will be able to do if he beats Piotr by two places.

He will not have it all his own way as Liran Moshe Machlev (ISR111) has now climbed into third place overall. Liran will be praying for light winds in the morning. This will give him his best chance of success.

Chang Hao (TPE8) once a contender has lost out big time in the lighter winds of today and is now 20 points adrift of the leader. He and Thiseas Kambas (GRE3) now 5th will be only too pleased if Liran’s prayers are not answered. Chang or Howard as he is known, because he has not honed his light wind skills. Thiseas, because it will give him a chance to just hang in there and let his tactical ability work for him without having to push himself physically too hard.

First start tomorrow 1000hrs. There will be three starts. Boys, Girls and Medal Race. In which order will be decided by the Race Committee on seeing the conditions.
