YAMAHA 470 Class World Championships 2019 – Day 3
All change on race day 3, Tuesday 6 August 2019, at the 2019 470 World Championships and Olympic Qualification in Enoshima, Tokyo as the breeze kicked in and the waves picked up for teams to face off in three back to back races in challenging conditions.
A change in leader board standings for the 182 competing athletes from 29 nations reflected the change in weather conditions, as new faces made their assault on the race track.
When the time came, Jordi Xammar / Nicolas Rodriguez (ESP) put their foot on the pedal, with some impressive downwind speed in the men’s fleet, winning every race and shifting up to take the overall lead. Second to multiple world champions Mathew Belcher / Will Ryan (AUS), with Giacomo Ferrari / Giulio Calabrò (ITA) in third. The Men’s Qualification Series wrapped up today and the heavy hitters now advance to face off in gold fleet racing, with the rest of the pack in silver. Every single point counts even more, as the gold fleet now features the final line-up of nine nations fighting for one, of only four, nation qualification places for Tokyo 2020 on offer here at the 470 Worlds.
Control at the front of the 470 Women fleet changed race by race with nine different teams stepping up to a top-three finish across the three races. Consistency pays and Japan’s defending world champions took their first race win of the series to edge them into the lead on a one-point advantage over Poland’s Agnieszka Skrzypulec / Jolanta Ogar. Rio 2016 Olympic Champion Hannah Mills (GBR) and crew Eilidh McIntyre scored 1, 9, 9 to sit just 4 points off pole position.
Racing continues on Wednesday 7 August 2019 at 12:00 hours local time with three races scheduled for the Men and Women fleets.
