SAILORS BATTLE FOR A PODIUM FINISH, ANTICIPATING THE MEDAL RACE TOMORROW

Mar del Plata, Argentina – On the fifth day of the ILCA 6 2024 Women’s World Championship, the typical Mar del Plata northeast wind was constant throughout the day. With an intensity ranging from 7 to 13 knots, conditions were ideal for both the gold and silver fleets to complete three races.

Anne Marie Rindom from Denmark comfortably maintains the lead in the gold fleet, with a 21-point difference ahead of the American Charlotte Rose, who now sits in second place. The Swiss sailor Maud Jayet rose to third place and is tied in points with the Belgian Emma Plasschaert, who holds fourth place.

Also participating in this race will be the Norwegian Line Flem Hoest, the Swedish Josefin Olsson, the Finnish Monika Mikkola, the Dutch Maxime Jonker, the British Hannah Snellgrove, and the Hungarian Maria Erdi.
