Irish Sailor Charms Her Way To The Top

Ireland’s Annalise Murphy (IRL) is the came out the traps fast in the Laser Radial at the London 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition after she logged impressive double bullets.

Murphy, who finished 25th in the 2012 Laser World Championships, saw off the challenge from the class favourites including Evi Van Acker (BEL) and Marit Bouwmeester (NED). She goes into day two with a three-point lead over the Belgian sailor in second. On her day the Irish girl said, “I am delighted with today. But it is only the first day. There is a lot of racing ahead. In the first race I had a good start and tacked across the beat and pulled away. It was great. I couldn’t do much wrong today. I have got brilliant upwind speed. It’s all coming together.”

Despite finishing sixth in the opening race by Bouwmeester’s standards she was less than impressed, “I was disappointed finishing sixth. I had to do a 720 downwind.” But the Dutch sailor and World #1 Radial sailor bounced back, “The second race was a solid race, very happy with that.”

Beijing 2008 silver medallist Gintare Scheidt (LTU) finished race one in second place behind MURPHY but goes into day two in seventh after finishing outside the top 10 in race two.

Paige Railey (USA) finished day one in fifth overall, trailing Murphy by 11 points. On the racing the American said, “I am just focusing on the here and now. It’s one moment at a time. You can’t control every situation. I didn’t get frazzled or anything, but you really need to change your tactics depending on the conditions.”

The Radials resume racing tomorrow at 12:00 local time on the Nothe course.

Slingsby On Track To Put Beijing Nightmare Behind Him

Five-time world champion Tom Slingsby (AUS) looked determined to banish his demons from Beijing 2008 when a victory and a second place in the Laser class placed him firmly at the top of the leader board on Monday.
The Australian entered the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games as the clear favourite but failed to make the medal race and finished in 22nd place.

On a better start at London 2012 Slingsby said, “Two good starts and two good first beats. I was really happy just to come second (in the first race). It’s a lot better than four years ago when I had a couple of 20s on day one. It’s all pretty perfect actually.”

Guatemalan sailor Juan Ignacio Maegli (GUA) saw off the competition from the favourites to win the first race. Maegli held a commanding lead throughout the race and now lies in second place overall behind Slingsby after an 11th in second place.

2012 Laser World Championship runner up Tonci Stipanovic (CRO) logged consistent results in both of the day’s races, placing him in third place on the leader board.

Brazil’s Bruno Fontes (BRA) also piled the pressure on the favourites. He finished in second place behind Slingsby in race two to place him eighth overall.

Alejandro Foglia Costa (URU) makes up the trio of South American sailors to finish the first day in the top 10. He finished the second race in third behind FONTES and lies seventh overall.

Lasers resume racing tomorrow at 14:00 local time on the Portland Harbour course.
