Int-14 World Championship - Race 3 Changing Places

 
It was all change at the top of the leaderboard after Race 3 of the International 14 World Championships in San Francisco.

Lindsay Irwin and Andrew Perry of Australia are the new overall leaders after Britain's Andy and Tom Partington suffered a T-foil rudder break and capsize.

Brits Neale Jones and Ed FitzGerald were the early leaders before capsizing at the gybe mark, with the Partingtons taking the lead ahead of Aussies David Hayter and Trent Neighbour.

Hayter and Neighbour took the lead on the final lap after Partingtons gear failure and held their lead to the finish.

Finishing in second place it was another Aussie pair, Lindsay Irwin and Andrew Perry, with Georg Borkenstein and Eike Dietrich of Germany taking third, Andy FitzGerald and Rich Dobson in fourth.

Overall Irwin and Perry take a two point lead from Borkenstein and Dietrich with Jones and FitzGerald a point back in third place.

In fourth are FitzGerald and Dobson with Mark Krstic and James Lanati in fifth and in sixth the day's winners Hayter and Neighbour.

Andy and Tom Partington managed to finish in 25th and drop back to eighth overall with a 1, 1, 25, scoreline after three races and before any race discard.

Now in second place are the German pair Borkenstein and Dietrich, who in their ancient (9 nine year old) fourteen, are surviving the chaos all around them in style.
