Leaderboard shuffles in a packed 3-race day for the gold fleet saw teams make the top–ten cut to the Medal Race, only to lose it in the next race, as the men’s and women’s fleets featured significant changes in finishing order.

Most probably the best breeze of the Championship arrived on the race track today, with around 12-14 knots.

Silver fleet racing wrapped up with wins to Fabienne Oster/Anastacia Krasko (GER) in women and Jose Manuel Ruiz Sanchez/Fernando Davila (ESP) in men.

The 2017 World Champions crowned on Saturday will be incredibly deserving teams who have had to dig deep to deliver in tough conditions amongst a world class fleet. A 1330 hours warning signal is scheduled for the 470 Women Medal Race, with the Men following at 1415 hours.

470 MEN
Ten teams from ten different nations advance to the medal race, reflecting the depth of talent around the world. Series leaders going into the day, Anton Dahlberg/Fredrik Bergstrom raced a consistent 4th place in race 9 to hold onto the lead, but their 18th place in race 10, compared with Mat Belcher/Will Ryan’s win, saw the overall lead go to the Aussies, with a 2 point advantage.

All change by race 11, as the Swede’s took another race win, and the Australians finished 4th, pitching Dahlberg/Bergstrom back into the lead on a 1 point advantage. Third to David Bargehr/Lukas Mahr (AUT).

The gold medal is a straight race off between the Swedish and Australians and whoever finishes ahead gets gold. Head to head, the Swedes best finish at a 470 Worlds is 6th, compared to Belcher’s tally of six back to back victories with Malcolm Page and Will Ryan, from 2010 through to 2015, until Rio 2016 Olympic Gold Medallists Sime Fantela/Igor Marenic stepped in his path to seize the 2016 470 Worlds title.

“It feels really good. I don’t have any medals from a “real” World Championship,” said Bergstrom, alluding to his gold medal from the 2011 470 Junior World Championship.

“It feels great and I was not expecting this,” Dahlberg added. “We need to win the medal race that’s for sure. We are going to give them a battle as they are going to give us a battle. It’s going to be a nice race for gold. This is a great opportunity for us. We are going for gold.”

Austria’s Bargehr/Mahr and Turkey’s Deniz Cinar/Ates Cinar are hunting down bronze. Before that challenge though, bodies will need to recover from the physical demands of today’s back to back races.

“The conditions were really good and this is the first time we have been in the top 5 and fighting for a medal place,” said Deniz. Their bronze medal race strategy is simple, “We will win the medal race,” smiled Ates.

Extra birthday celebrations for Pavlos Kagialis, racing with helm Panagiotis Mantis, as the world #1 partnership and Rio 2016 Olympic Bronze medallists knocked out their first win of the Championship in race nine. A challenging race 10 saw the pair finish 16th and go on to face the closing race of the final series 3 points off a place in the top-ten line-up. Pressure was on – so relief to finish 7th in the deciding race and qualify through to the medal race.

Ten teams from eight nations will meet in Saturday’s 470 Women medal race, whittled down from an entry line-up of sixty teams, with four pairings in with a shot at the medals.

A career best performance for Poland’s Agnieszka Skrzypulec/Irmina Mrózek Gliszczynska, who have guaranteed themselves either gold or silver medal and sit on a 16 point advantage Hannah Mills/Eilidh McIntyre (GBR).

“We have come back stronger,” smiled Mrózek Gliszczynska in reference to the injury that kept her out of the boat. “After seven months without sailing I have been so focused to be back and now we are leading the World Championship.”

“I can’t believe we are in front of the Olympic Gold Medallist,” chipped in Skrzypulec. “I admire Hannah so much. For me she’s a great sailor and all the time I had the chance, I was watching her and trying to learn from her and now we are in front, this is an incredible feeling.

“We are in a comfortable position, and today was the day when I knew we could make things simple or we could complicate tomorrow. So I am very happy that it looks really nice. I have watched a lot of medal races and know that anything can happen.”

Skrzypulec concluded, “The gold is there and we have to go and grab it!”

Mills/McIntyre could end their Championship with a medal or a fourth place, so will be looking to attack the Polish whilst holding off the chasing Slovenian pair of Tina Mrak/Veronika Macarol and the world #1 pair of Afrodite Zegers/Anneloes van Veen. Both the Slovenians and Dutch can take out silver or bronze, or end the Championship in fourth. Mills has the 2012 470 World Championship gold to her credit, whilst the rest of the teams

“I think it has been a really stressful week, a really difficult regatta waiting all day,” reflected Macarol on the preceding race days. “Today finally we had good wind and we did two good races, and tomorrow will be a good medal race.”

Mrak added, “We trained hard for these conditions, so we are quite comfortable with our speed and boat handling, so we knew we could do our best. For now it looks good, but tomorrow will be another hard medal race so we need to relax and to get energy for tomorrow. We are now going to eat some sushi!”

Zegers/van Veen won the 470 European Championship in May, and have been on a winning streak since finishing 4th at the Rio Olympics. The pair sits 5 points off third place.

“We have had some difficult races,” said van Veen on the early part of the Championship. “We tried to get our heads back in it and we did pretty well. Today we did really well and are back in the game.

“Tomorrow the only thing we have to do is sail our best, win the medal race and then go home,” resolved Zegers.

The closest any of these four medal contention teams have got to the podium before is a fifth place, so whatever unfolds in the Medal Race it will be a landmark day for all.

Olimpíadas, el día después.

El texto a continuación fue escrito exactamente el día después del triunfo de Santi Lange y Ceci Carranza en Río 2016, por un amigo que prefirió permanecer en el anonimato. Me pareció interesante cuando me lo mostró (hace un par de días), asi que quería compartirlo con todos Uds.

El triunfo de Santiago Lange me parece que pone en blanco sobre negro un monton de cosas sobre el deporte y la asignacion de recursos. No puedo olvidarme de un jugador de futbol, de esos que Santiago Lange dijo que admira, que se fue de una concentracion, o de un partido, o de un campeonato, porque extrañaba a la mamá.
No puedo dejar de pensar en los 2, 3 o 4 miles de millones de pesos del futbol para todos: sea del gobierno anterior, de este, o del que venga.
El hecho de que este deporte sin tribunas haya tenido su minuto de fama ocurre solo por que gano un tipo que hace un año lo operaron de cáncer, pero que haya estado 20 o 30 años participando en las olimpiadas es un detalle. O que comparta la presencia olimpica con sus hijos es otra nimiedad.
Un tipo como cualquiera, que se entrena al limite pero no sale en revistas. No esta tatuado, porque no necesita de una tribuna que lo mire, un tipo que no usa arito, usa metodos y disciplina, ni se corta el pelo con rayitas ni con flecos. Pero no tiene tribuna, solo tiene medallas y en una semana seguramente pasara al olvido porque en el yachting no hay tribunas y cuando terminen las olimpiadas, y se asigne el monto destinado al futbol….chau Santiago Lange
No puedo dejar de pensar en muchos deportistas hartos de papeles para que les paguen los subsidios, los de kayac, los de jabalina, los de salto en largo, los de garrocha….
La prensa y muchos periodistas que hoy lo adulan, en dos semanas van a estar pendientes de la botinera de turno o de si Messi esta constipado o no. Cuando escuches a un jugador de futbol que dice que hay que dejar o que dejó todo en la cancha, acordate de Santiago Lange. A ese, no lo aplaudia nadie.
No lo conozco a Santiago Lange: corrí contra él en la época de los Pengüin, probablemente hoy ni me reconozca, tenemos muchos amigos en comun y eso me basta.
Solo se que es un tipo que navega, lo hace con ganas y ademas se ganó todo, pero no es suficiente, no alcanza, no se vé. No me gusta idolatrar a la gente, no tengo ídolos. Santiago Lange no es mi ídolo, solo digo lo que pienso.
