470 get some racing in Monaco

While other events were grounded the 470 Europeans in Monaco was treated to a big breeze and waves that upped the pace, in complete contrast to conditions over the first three days.

Racing was postponed in the morning as the waves of up to 4 metres and average wind speed of 25 knots, with gusts up to 32 knots, was a volatile combination.

Racing finally got underway when the wind had dropped to 22-23, with gusts of 25 knots. The wind continued to decrease to around 20 knots for the second race of the day.

In the women's event, Afrodite Zegers and Anneloes Van Veen of Holland racked up a 2-1, leading and tied on 46 points with Poland's Agnieszka Skrzupulec and Jolanta Ogar (4-7).

In third place are Britain's Amy Seabright and Anna Carpenter after a 9-6 and just two ponits of the leaders.

Very much on the pace were the Spanish pair, Silvia Mas Depares and Patricia Cantero with a 1-4 and now in 7th place overall.
