With the windsurf boards out of the way, all that is left is to determine the winners in the Women’s 470 classes and the 49er class, which will bring the championships to a close.


The medal races contested today were enthralling affairs. The unsettled wind conditions in terms of both speed and direction made for ever more spectacular races, and the final result hung in the balance right to the wire.


In the Women’s RS:X, Zofia Klepacka scored a come-from-behind win and finished in great style. The young Pole rounded the 1st mark in the last position, but then literally ‘stormed’ to victory, adding one more triumph to the three she had already recorded. “I’m very happy because I am very young and I was up against far more experienced sailors. It hasn’t sunk in yet. This was Poland’s first gold medal at these championships. I rode my luck and was very fast”, said Zofia. Barbara Kendall, of New Zealand, and Jessica Crisp, of Australia took silver and bronze.


In the Women’s 470 class, Holland’s Marcelien de Koning and Lobke Berkhout are clear at the top and seem set to renew their world title. Ingrid Peitjean and Nadège, of France, and Japan’s Ai Kondo and Naoko Kamata complete the trio of front runners.
