2021 ILCA Masters World Championships in Barcelona - Day 4

by Jon Emmett 18 Nov 06:38 GMT 12-20 November 2021

Two races were completed on Wednesday at the the ILCA Masters World Championships. After three grey days with unstable and light wind, the fourth day finally brought sun and stable wind.

Once again, the sailors had an early start today with the first warning signal at 9:00. The ILCA 6 fleets enjoyed an average northwesterly wind of 12-16 knots while the ILCA 7 had an average of 10-12 knots, and both were able to complete their races without a hitch, to be back on shore by 11:30.

After adding two races to all the scoreboards, the ILCA 7 divisions have completed a total of six races. In the ILCA 6 fleets, the Apprentices, the Great Grand Masters, and the Legends have completed seven races and the Masters and Grand Masters finished six.

The leaders in ILCA 7 are Poland's Maciej Grabowski, tied with Belgian Wannes Van Laer, in the Apprentice division; American Ernesto Rodriguez added two more firsts to hold his lead in the Masters division while fellow countryman Robert Hallawell also maintained his lead over the Grand Masters; and Spain's Josele Doreste is still leading the Great Grand Masters.

In the ILCA 6 fleets, Great Britain's Jon Emmett added two more firsts to his picket fence in the Apprentice fleet; Sweden's Stefan Eriksson is first of the Masters; Spain's Miguel Noguer rose to the top of the Grand Master division; American Bill Symes also has a straight picket fence in the Great Grand Masters division while fellow countryman Peter Seidenberg sits in first place over the Legends.

Steady conditions are forecasted for Day 5 in the morning, so the first warning signal will be at 9:00 again with two races scheduled
