Nacra 17 Europeans - 4 GBR crews make the Medal Races

In his first day on the helm since the Nacra17 event began, the injured Jason Waterhouse and crew Lisa Darmanin won the pin, put the bow down, and flew away from the fleet.

Aussies Waterhouse and Darmanin win wouldn’t allow them to climb into medal race contention, so Friday they will be watching the action from the sidelines.

Italy's Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti (4,12,2) keep overall lead of the Nacra17 European Championship in Kiel, with Denmark’s Lin Ea Cenholt Christiansen and Christian Peter Lubeck (2,3,4) now in second.

In third place are Britain's Ben Saxton and and Katie Dabson (15,2,1).

Three other GBR entries make it into the three race Medal series on Friday.

John Gimson and Anna Burnett, Tom Phipps and Nicola Boniface, and Chris Rashley and Laura Marimon.

The forecast is for a breeze into the 20’s and gusts potentially over 30 knots. It should be the best conditions of the week for fast and furious racing.
