After 60 Flight Races over this week, the RS Aero VR fleet has found their top 40 sailors who will take part in two VR Finals series starting at 18:30 BST on Thursday 7th May.

First is the B Final, where competitors from around the world will be in a 4 race, clean slate, no discard shoot out, to find the minor placings on the virtual podium. The odds-on favourite, based on Flight performance to date is Henry Chandler, who missed out on the top twenty battle by the tightest of margins, a first, second and two thirds still not good enough to get into the Grand Final !!

The second set of racing sees the top 20 VR RS Aero sailors on the VR waters around the world, under the Directorship of VR Guru Ben Rolfe, who counted 4 race wins in his flight racing series. Top of the rankings however, sees Dan Bullock with a clean line of bullets as his counting 6, winning every race on his Tuesday race series.

It could be tight, the standard is high, it could be victory for anyone.

Racing will be streamed live on facebook here.
