Duel of Titans just about to start in La Ballena Alegre

When Paschalidis-Trigonis managed a perfect qualification series, scoring the lowest possible five points score, Bundock-Nicholas proved they got nerves of steel, scoring 2, 1, 1, 1, 1 after getting UFD in Race One, hence finishing only one point behind Greek pair before finals start, and true battle is just to come, Gold and Silver fleets being now built.

If main World Title contenders got very low scores, Argies Cruz GONZALEZ SMITH & Mariano HEUSER did pretty well with a steady and performing series (2, 5, 3, 2, 2, 2), five points ahead Booth family, Mitch & Ruben scoring 16 points (7, 2, 13, 4, 2, 1), a group of six boats (Brett BURVILL/Max PUTTMAN, Gavin COLBY/Pete DUBBELAAR, Matthieu SOUBEN/Benjamin AMIOT, Pablo VÖLKER/Sergio MEHL, Cristian VETTORI/Maurizio STELLA,Simon NORTHROP/Caleb COOPER) being then ranked within six points. Needless to say that fight will be very tense at the front of the fleet.

In terms of statistics, interesting to see overseas delegations do not regret their investment in shipping their boats, ARG qualifying 5 teams on 5, AUS 14 on 17, CHI & USA 1 on 2, most popular equipment used being a Scorpion powered by 1D Sails or an Edge powered by Next Gen Sails …
