Hugo Rocha fights back to lead SB20 Worlds

Three more races were completed for the Cascais SB20 World Championships on the penultimate day of racing.They went that-a-way!

Having had to retire from the final race yesterday, Hugo Rocha set out to re-establish his place at the top of the leaderboard on New Territories (RUS3711).

He achieved that with an incredible 2-1-2 scoreline.

This has put Rocha firmly back on the top of the table, with 45 points to Gabriel Skoczek’s (FRA3653) 61.

However, with yesterday’s 77-point DNS hanging over the Russian crew they have no margin for error on the final day Saturday.

Gabriel Skoczek won the final race of the day, while Massimo Fullone on Mercy Bocu (ITA3637) took the first.

That was Fullone's third win of the event, but with two DNC’s on the first day the Italian team is only just inside the top 10.

There is a strong battle going on between two Australian teams.

Flirtacious (AUS3735) is in fourth on 93 points and Michael Cooper’s Export Roo (AUS3731) two points behind in fifth.
