Double Discard Now at Moth Worlds
Published on May 28th, 2016
Hayama, Japan (May 28, 2016) – The fleet returned to the race course at the YANMAR Moth Worlds 2016, with yesterday’s lay day offering rest and recovery for both boats and sailors.
However, due to very light winds in the morning, the participants had to wait for a long time to start racing. The first race was started at 3:35pm (JST) when a south-southwesterly breeze of 6-7 knots allowed for three more races to be completed.
The second discard is now on the scoreboard, and while Paul Goodison (GBR) remains in the lead after posting a 3-1-4, Robert Greenhalgh (GBR) is again in the mix after losing two races on day two due to a failed sidestay.
Greenhalgh, who led the regatta after day one, posted a 1-2-1 today to leave him just five points off the lead with the final three races to be held tomorrow.
Fifteen races are scheduled from May 24 to 29.
