Penultimat day at the 2023 World Championships saw the final races for the iQfoil windsurfers and the Formula Kites.
The British Team missed out on Gold, but Eleanor Aldridge took Siver and Lily Young the Bronze behind Lauriane Nolot of France in the women’s Kite.
And Emma Wilson took Bronze in the iQFOil windsurfer behind Israel’s Shahar Tibi and Katy Spychakov.
No GBR medals in the men’s iQFOil windsurfer or Kite, which saw a dramatic Gold finish for 16 year old Max Maeder of Singapore in the Kite, and Gold for Luuc van Opzeeland of Holland in the iQFOil.
Sunday will see the final championship events, the Medal Races for the men and women’s ILCA dinghies.
In the men Michael Beckett in 3rd and Elliot Hanson in 10th will start for Britain, but Aussie Matt Wearn looks to have the Gold settled and Kiwi George Gautrey will be strongly defending his second place.
In the women, Maud Jayet SUI, Anne-Marie Rindom DEN and Maria Erdi HUN will be contesting the podium places, with Marit Bouwmeester NED looking to take advantage of their distraction.
No Brits made the cut for the ILCA 6 Medal race.
