Stipanovic’s nearest rival is the 2015 Sailing World Cup Qingdao winner, Great Britain’s Lorenzo Brando Chiavarini who scored a 2,4 which moved him in to second place on 26 points, compared to Stipanovic’s 15.

Although up to second, it wasn’t easy going for the Briton out on the water, “It was a pretty stressful day. The tide was going all over the place but my downwind speed always seemed to save me.”

Missing marks in choppy Chinese waters

The wind picked up on day three of the Sailing World Cup Qingdao as marks were missed and misjudgements made in the unforgiving waters of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.

Cloud cover and current played havoc with on water decisions in China as sailors continued learning the tricky elements Qingdao has to offer. It wasn’t just about the visiting sailors either as fleet leaders and home nation competitors were not exempt from mistakes cutting point gaps at the top.

Laser

Croatia’s Tonci Stipanovic remains top of the Laser fleet and holds off Giovanni Coccoluto who is keeping in close contact with the Olympic silver medallist.

Stipanovic scored a third and discarded fourth to end the day on 11 points and just one ahead of Coccoluto who is on 12. The Italian scored a similar second and fourth but a discarded tenth from the very first race of the regatta means he is under a bit more pressure to finish higher than his Croatian rival.

It’s the same, but different at Sailing World Cup Qingdao

However, with an open entry list some sailors took up a new challenge that was presented to them in the search of new skills. A challenge welcomed with open arms.

From racing in international fleets with top class sailors to dealing with a new condition and sailing element, Sailing World Cup Qingdao welcomed all comers to take what they need to out of the regatta. Some were learning new skills, some sharpening their old ones ready for a showpiece final.
