FD Worlds at Constanta, Romania after Day 8

by Richard Phillips 7 Aug 2010 10:12 BST 29 July - 7 August 2010

Two races were sailed in light winds on 6 August. The Hungarian teams had another good day. Szabolcs Majthenyi and Andreas Domokos sailing in HUN 70 were 1st and 3rd and have now won the Championship with a race to go - discarding a 2nd and a 3rd. Antal Kardos and Csaba Polgar in HUN 78 are lying 5th overall and Gabor Gaborjani and Bela Argay in HUN 11 are 6th.

Enno Kramer and Ard Geelkerken in NED 26 held on to their 2nd place in the overall results with a 5th and by winning the 8th race. However, Nicola Vespasiani and Francesco Vespasiani in ITA 4 are only 4 points behind discarding their 5th in the 8th race so the pressure is still on for the final race scheduled for 7 August.

Results after 8 races:

1st HUN 70 - 7pts
2nd NED 26 - 15pts
3rd ITA 4 - 19pts
4th GER 88 - 24pts
5th HUN 78 - 29pts
6th HUN 11 - 30pts
