Peak-Ryzex Albacore Internationals 2017 at the WPNSA - Day 4

by Mike Banner 11 Aug 2017 08:49 BST 5-11 August 2017

Tom Lonsdale and Steve Graham completed their domination of the Peak-Ryzex sponsored Albacore Internationals at Weymouth by winning both races on day 4 to secure the Internationals title with a day to spare.

The fleet sailed out to the bay in sunshine and a gusty F4 which got lighter and more shifty as the day progressed.

In R2 it looked like Canadians James and Julie Stanley would take the win but a dramatic luffing match saw Tom and Steve first by the narrowest of margins.

Behind the champions there is still plenty to play for with the final two races today.

USA's Barney Harris and Dave Smith hold on to second overall closely chased by John Greenwood and Alex Colquitt.

In the evening the class dinner was enjoyed by nearly 100 sailors and their families in Spinnakers restaurant at WPNSA and a presentation on the next Internationals to be held in 2019 in Canada whetted the appetite of many.
