Etchells Worlds - Bertrand falters on way to title

John Bertrand hit a major bump on his road to another Etchells World title with a 34th in the opening race Friday.

Aussie Bertrand got back on track with an 8th in the second race to finish the day with a lead reduced to eight points.

Fortunately for Bertrand the opposition cannot seem to string two good resullts together.

Second placed Noel Drennan (SIN) took second in the first race, but then followed it with an 18 in the second race.

While third placed Steve Benjamin (USA) also failed to land a killer blow, scoring a 10 and 11 to close the gap to 13 points.

Winners Friday were, Lawrie Smith, who paired it with a 22 to gain one place overall to fifth. And Mark Thornburrow (HKG) whose 5 and 1 gave him the best results of the day.
