2021 ILCA Masters World Championships in Barcelona - Day 6

by Jon Emmett 20 Nov 08:56 GMT 12-20 November 2021

Two races were completed on the penultimate day of the ILCA Masters World Championships. With another 9am first warning signal and a light northwest wind, the races went off without a hitch and the sailors were back on shore by midday.

After today's racing, three World champions were predetermined in the ILCA 6 fleet: Great Britain's Jon Emmett in the Apprentice division and Americans Bill Symes in the Great Grand Master and Peter Seidenberg in the Legends division.

With one day to go, the ILCA 7 fleet has sailed 10 of the 12 championship races, as have the ILCA 6 Masters and Grand Masters. The ILCA 6 Apprentices, Great Grand Masters, and the Legends divisions, however, have completed 11 of the 12.

Belgium's Wannes Van Laer is still defending first place in the ILCA 7 Apprentice division, just three points ahead of Polish Maciej Grabowski; both Americans Ernesto Rodriguez and Robert Hallawell hold significant leads in the ILCA 7 Masters and Grand Masters divisions, respectively, heading into the final day; and Spain's Josele Doreste is also sitting far ahead in first in the Great Grand Masters division.

In the ILCA 6 fleet, Emmett and Symes have secured their leads in the Apprentice and Great Grand Master divisions. Sweden's Stefan Eriksson reclaimed his lead over France's Jean-Christophe Leydet in the Masters division, France's Gilles Coadou has a 29-point lead in the Grand Master division, and American Peter Seidenberg has maintained his first-place position in the Legend division.

The first warning signal is scheduled for the final day at 09:00, and the race committee will try to complete all 12 races of the championship on Saturday.
