Dec 2023

The second day of racing was a windy but shifty one here in Brazil. Two more races were completed for each fleet, suffling the results once again since the crews now discard their worst.

420 Male
Victory in the day’s opening race helped lift Jean-Philippe Boudard and Zou Schemmel (FRA) to the top of the standings after day two.
The French duo picked up where they left off after winning the final race on Monday, winning race three ahead of Sviatoslav Madonich and Dmytro Karabadzhak (UKR) and overnight leaders Quan Cardi and Mattia Tognocchi (ITA).
A sixth-place finish was not enough to knock Boudard and Schemmel off top spot, as home pair Lucas Cocchi Kubelka de Freitas and Victória Kubelka de Carlos Back (BRA) took the day’s second victory to lift them into third.
Henry Heathcote and Oscar Cawthorne (GBR) took second in race four ahead of Joe Leith and Joshua Ferrissey (NZL), who moved up to fifth overall.
“It is a bit early because we have three more days but it is always good to be top of the fleet on the second day,” said Schemmel.
“I just want to do my best to help my crew and my team to win the individual and the nations trophy.
“The nations trophy is really important for the team and the federation.”
420 Female
Joana Faulhaber Tostes Antunes Gonç and Gabriela Vassel (BRA) continued their strong form on home waters with another bullet to sit nine points clear at the top of the 420 female standings.
The home favourites won both races on Monday and followed that up with a third victory on the spin on Tuesday, before rounding off the day with a second-place finish.
It means they sit comfortably ahead of Maayan Shemesh and Emilie Louviot (ISR) who moved up to second overall with third and fourth-place finishes.
The Israeli pair finished third in the day’s second race which was won by Noa Moskovitch and Gabriella Burlton (GBR).
Faulhaber Tostes Antunes Gonç and Vassel took victory in the opening race ahead of Tessa Clinton and Nicola Hume (NZL) and Zeynep Çaçur and Zeynep Ela Koy (TUR), who sit third overall.
“We had an average one on the first one and won the last race so we are really happy about that,” said Burlton.
“We just want to keep cool, sail quite conservatively until the end where we might need to be a bit more tactical and hopefully get some more race wins.”

Two races are scheduled for both fleets, with fleets swapping timings.

Girls are starting at 11:00 local time and Male/Mixed crews are following at 13:30
