Defending Champion, Kistanov new Junior Finn World’s leader
Defending Finn Junior World Champion Arkadiy Kistanov (RUS) has taken the lead in the Silver Cup from German Lennard Luttkus after winning his second race today. The scoreboard remains tight with six sailors within four points. „It will be hard to keep the leadâ€ said Kistanov „There are a lots of sailors who can still win and the World Champion will be decided on the last race.â€
Explaining his day and his second victory, Arkaiy added: „I started on the pin end to get to the left where the wind was more favourable. I was leading at the top mark and tried to control Milosz (Wojewski).â€ The two Polish sailors Wojewski and Jodlowski crossed the line in second and third position.
Michal Jodlowski (POL) encouraged by his third place, perfected his game, winning the next race. „I think I have finally broke the code of this lake! Now I understand the pattern of the wind. I feel more confident making my choices, especially upwind. I had watched the wind between the races and the right seemed better this time. I saw the fleet go left like in the first race and was one of the rare to chose the right side. I was first at the windard mark and sailed the rest of the race conservatively on the run, trying not to make any mistakes. I am happy with my sailing and my last three results. It is coming together now!â€
Second and third place in race eight went to Martin Robitaille (CAN) and Thomas Morel (FRA). The fourth place goes to young Austrian Nikolaus Lehner who sailed today his best race in the event.
The Canadian has now taken second overall and is only one point from Kistanov (RUS). Early leader Luttkus (GER) is in third place.
Two races are scheduled for Thursday 5th of July.
