Sailing ISAF World Championships 2018

Recommended Posts

Two world champions for Holland in about 20 minutes. First Lilian de Geus in Women's RSX and then Dorian van Rijsselberghe in the men's RSX. WOW!!! Both men and women still have to sail the medalrace :yikes:

And here it is.

 

Olympic quota - check

Medal - check

Gold medal - almost check

 

Incredible, even in an off-year for our sailing, our guys still pull this out despite having very limited experience in the 49er class. :bowdown:

all results have now been published on the official website, so we can take them for official...

 

3 Olympic spots for Italy and the 49er crew just missing out by finishing 1 single point behind DEN, 2 points behind SUI and 3 points behind POR (all of them qualified to Tokyo 2020)...they just haven't been lucky, to say the least...

 

and Tita/Banti finally did make up for yesterday's disaster and now they're back on top of the rankings of the Nacra 17 class before the Medal Race (which is expected to be a great show, since we have ITA 1 point ahead of AUS, then ARG 3 points from the top and DEN 6 points behind ITA...even BRA -12 points behind ITA- is not out of the Gold Medal fight yet)...

:NED qualified RSX Men, RSX Women, Finn, 49er FX and Laser Radial. That's 5 boats. Or did the Women's 470 also qualify?

3 boats is exactly what I expected from Brazil, but Nacra 17 instead of Finn was kinda unexpected.

 

Also, with both Argentina and Brazil qualified in Nacra, I think the south american spot will probably go to Uruguay.
