Rooster RS Aero World Championship at Yacht Club de Carnac - Day 3

by RS Aero International Class Association 27 Jul 2017 13:24 BST 24-28 July 2017

Another fantastic day of fresh breezes on France's Brittany Coast graced the third day of the Rooster RS Aero Worlds in Carnac. 96 worn out but elated RS Aero sailors came ashore with faces beaming again from the exciting downwind rides that they had once again experienced.

The top players in the RS Aero 9 fleet all strengthened their podium positions with Marc Jacobi USA taking three 1sts, GBR Youth Liam 'Lightning' Willis taking three 2nds and Greg Bartlett GBR three 3rds.

The battle at the top of the sixty-strong RS Aero 7 fleet continued with another 2:1 split between Steve Cockerill GBR and Peter Barton GBR, horns locked just one point apart going into the last two races. Paul Bartlett GBR maintained his third overall whilst Marcus Walther GER gained ground in fourth finishing the day with a third.

Noah Rees GBR is chased by Yannick Gloster USA for the Top Youth and Jane Peckham GBR and Caitie Atkin GBR are chasing after Liina Kolk EST and Juliane Barthel GER for the Lady's title. The Masters (over 55) RS Aero 7 title is looking pretty safe with Rooster's Steve Cockerill GBR!

Andrew Frost GBR pulled out a small lead in the RS Aero 5s with a 3,1,1. Sander Puppart EST holds second, Andrias Sillaste EST third with Kate Sargent GBR (top Lady) pulling up to one point off the podium in fourth with a 4,2,2 flying through the fleet on the runs. (See the full results at the bottom of this report.)

At the daily Rooster prize giving, each fleet leader generously gave their top tips to the fleet. Andrew Frost stressed the importance of identifying any small bias on the long start lines. Marc Jacobi encouraged competitors to 'never give up' with opportunities until the end of each race.

Steve Cockerill of Rooster provided an insight into his incredible downwind speed with, "when you come off the plane on a reach remember to ease the sheet" due to the apparent wind going aft and potential for stall. Plenty to think about there going into Day 4!

A fantastic BBQ from YC Carnac followed before the fleet reconvened at the designated bar for a full wash down.

The breeze looks like it may be a little lighter going into Day 4; a welcome break perhaps to some aching muscles!
