by Moth Worlds Argentina 2022 4 Dec 2022 05:52 GMT 27 November - 4 December 2022

On the penultimate day of racing at the Moth World Championship the wind again delivered on a typical spring day on the Rio de la Plata and four more races were completed.

The first two races were sailed in easterly winds of around 9 knots, both won by Argentine Massimo Contessi.

For the third and fourth races the wind intensity increased and British sailor Dylan Fletcher, who has been leading the world championship since yesterday, won both races.

With these results Fletcher is comfortably positioned as leader of the standings with 11 points, while the Argentine Massimo Contessi follows him in second place with 19 points. Italy's Simone Salva completes the podium with a total of 23 points.

After the races the sailors shared an after race meal of prawns with gin Bosque.
