J70 worlds - Troubles continue in Porto Cervo

The Audi J/70 World Championship is proving to be a difficult series. Battered by the weather it is moving into the final day with just four races completed.

The fourth race factor is important as it means they have a valid championship with one day to go, even if no more racing is possible.

Peter Duncan's Relative Obscurity (USA) extended their lead and now holds a ten point advantage for the Audi J/70 World Championship after finishing second Friday.

Spain's Fermax of Gustavo Martinez finished fourth and is second overall on 17 points.

Third is Italy's Petite Terrible #Audi of Claudia Rossi which could only manage a 20th finish but with their 1,4,1 earlier they take third with 26 points.

Petite Terrible is tied on points with Luca Domenici's Notaro team ITA who finished tenth in the gold race.

Pete Cunningham's Power Play won the first gold race in shifty conditions, but finished the day down in 16th place overall.

However, with a discard unlikely to kick in, the winner is far from decided.

In the Silver fleet Norwegian Steam (NOR) Eivind Astrup leads.
