Star Sailors League Finals - Day 3 Results

Racing at the fifth edition of the Star Sailors League Finals started Tuesday, at Nassau Yacht Club in Nassau’s Montagu Bay. Highlights and Results for day 3 . . .

Race 8 complete . . . and that's all for today. Final fleet racing on Friday, then Knock-out races Saturday for Top 10.

Despite a second light day that perhaps should have favoured the lighter crews, US heavyweights Mark Mendelblatt and Brian Fatih posted a solid 1-2 on day three of the Star Sailor’s League Final off Nassau to take the lead overall.

In truth, the US occupation of the top spot was equally down to the impressively consistent Robert Scheidt and Henry Boening vacating it after an uncharacteristic error.

They hooked the weather mark and had to carry out a penalty turn in the second race, resulting in a 19th place finish.

A tough day for the Brits, Paul Goodison and Frithjof Kleen (GER) scored a 20,21 to drop to tenth overall, while Ben Saxton and Steve Mitchell had a 16,15 to place 11th.
