(AGR) Third day of racing in Sorrento (Victoria, Australia) for the World Olympic windsurfing RSX class men and women. After waved yesterday, with three tests of 25 knots who physically committed the competitors, today many said they enjoyed the surprise of light wind in contrast to the expected 20 knots. Relief misleading, because the race course proved to be difficult and full of traps for wind fluctuations and the presence of strong currents.


Behind Italy’s detached a dozen points there are 6th in the other Israeli Katy Spychakov (world silver in 2019) (02/07/11) and strong comeback the French Charline Picon (gold in Rio 2016), back 7th place with a great day (1-1-6).


In addition to the 5th of Marta Maggetti (Guardia di Finanza), Ranked in 14th place we find Giorgia Special (CC Aniene) which is fighting with the best in search of a place in the top 10 that would be the Medal Race. Today Ancona started well and then stumbled upon a race in which he had a “repair” following a protest, and then finish the day with a try unwrapped (4-RDG / 15.5-28), and is always clearly first in the standings Under-21 Veronica Fanciulli (Financial Police) in mid-regatta fleet and is in 28th place overall (33-23-21).

Friday 28 other conclusive evidence to determine the final standings and the top 10 who will be at the start of the Medal Race to score double that assigns title on Saturday 29. The purpose of the blue is possible to bring two athletes in Medal and fight for a place on podium.


Lengthens the lead Dutch Kiran Badloe (1-11-1 of the day), now has a full 25 points ahead of the second, the Polish Pawel Tarowski (16-19-2) and 26 sull’israeliano Shahar Zubari (2-1 -12), while down from the podium in 4th place Dutch another observed special, Dorian van Rijsselberghe (gold in both London 2012 to Rio 2016) (03/05/25).

Resists to 10th place the blue Daniele Benedetti (Yellow Flames) despite a third test unwrapped (4.9.22) to 19 points from the podium area. It is difficult for Mattia Camboni (Fiamme Azzurre) the run-up to the Medal Race, three anonymous testing sends it down to 17th place (29-14-15), to 28 points from the top-10. It will need a small miracle to see two blue in Saturday’s final.


In the Silver fleet make a good impression the young people of our team: Carlo Ciabatti (WC Cagliari) is 3rd (1-3-3) and Nicholas Renna (CS Torbole) is 4th (2-1-1).


The World Program provides RSX races from Tuesday 25 to Friday 28, and Saturday 29 the Medal Race in the top 10 competitors of the male and female end rankings, beginning at 11:00 pm local time (01:00 in Italy at night) . Expected a deviation of the worst race from the fourth to the tenth test, two discards from the eleventh test.

The World Olympic windsurfing RSX 2020 Sorrento is also valid as the final Olympic qualification by country for the countries of Oceania, both in Division A male and female in Division B.
