Int-14 World Championship - 3rd Partington win

 
After the lay-day break, the 61 crews returned to the waters of Frisco Bay for the final stage of the International 14 World Championship.

At the end of the fifth day of racing Britain's Neale Jones and Ed FitzGerald are tied for the lead with Lindsay Irwin and Andrew Perry of Australia.

Ten points back David Hayter and Trent Neighbour of Australia have a one point lead ahead of the British father and son duo, Andy and Tom Partington.

Overnight leaders Georg Borkenstein and Eike Dietrich of Germany are now in fifth place, tied on 34 points with the Partingtons.

Race 5 was sailed in a lighter breeze than the previous races, favouring the lighter crews.

After a postponement ten seconds before the start of Race 5, which would have been a general recall, the fleet turned around for the restart.

Left or right or up the middle? Most of the fleet hit the left and a few intrepid skiffs went right - left won with plenty hitting the port lay line.

Dan Holman and Alex Knight (GBR 1556) came in hot and tacked just in front of the Partingtons, but their lead didn't last long as 'Penguin Dance' quick stepped over the top of them down the first run.

Tight covering by the Partingtons, allowed the British team to haul in another win - their third in five races.

Holman and Knight took second, with Jones and FitzGerald third, and Doug Pattison and Mark Tait (GBR 1561) in fourth.

The Aussie pair David Hayter and Trent Neighbour were fifth and Mikey Radziejowski and Evan Sjostedt of the USA sixth.

This leaves the Partingtons fourth overall before the discard comes into play after the next race, so there is still all to play for with two races remaing and the breeze forecast to return.
