Sailing - 05. July 2007.

Day two of racing the ISAF World Sailing Championships in Portugal

With varying wind conditions and strengths across the four racecourses, it proved a tricky day for competitors in the Laser, Tornado, Laser Radial and Star classes.


Charlotte Dobson is the leading Brit in the Laser Radial event, in 15th place after their first day of racing for the class. Dobson posted a 14,6, while Athens Olympian Laura Baldwin saw an impressive third in her first race before receiving a black-flag for a premature start in race two. European bronze medallist Penny Clark held on in her lesser-favoured wind conditions to post a 19,7 and see her in 22nd overall.


Thursday sees the start of racing for the Finn and Yngling classes – Sarah Ayton, Sarah Webb and Pippa Wilson and double Olympic gold medallist Shirley Robertson with her crew Annie Lush and Lucy Macgregor will be looking to attract the attention of British selectors in their quest for qualification for the Beijing spot.


“Shirley clearly has it all to do – Sarah has the on-form team at the moment, she’s been on the podium at every event this year and Shirley’s had a limited programme for a number of reasons,” said RYA Olympic Manager Stephen Park.


“But Shirley’s always at her best, I think, when she’s got her back against the wall and she’s under a bit of pressure to deliver at the big event – and she’s got a record of doing that. Two gold medals are the record and you’re certainly not going to bet against someone who’s got two gold medals in an experience sport like sailing.


“It’s going to be interesting to see whether she’s going to come back here with a bang.”

Racing at the ISAF World Sailing Championships in C

ascais, Portugal, continues through until Friday 13 July.
