Each of the Gold and Silver Fleets at the J/70 Corinthian World Championship completed two races Friday. Varied conditions alternating between sunny skies and lighter wind to dark clouds and intermittent squalls kept 109 teams on alert. The challenging times on the water resulted in a shuffle within the Gold Fleet, now at three races scored. Two British teams have moved into the leading podium positions: Isabelle Fellows/Jonathan Calascione’s Calypso at 20 points and Ian Dobson/Charles Thompson’s Brutus II at 27 points. Tied on points for the bronze position is Tonu Toniste’s Lenny (EST). Renato Faria’s ToNessa (BRA) is dominating the Silver Fleet, posting two more bullets Friday, for just 5 points in four races. Ingvar Ferby’s Folkeslivs (SWE) holds second, and Eiko Powilleit’s Wikiwiki (GER) moved into third. Race winners in the Gold Fleet included Fernando Borja’s Sensación (GER) and Alberto Guarischi’s Three Musketeers (BRA). And in the Silver Fleet, Faria’s ToNessa won both contests. Countries represented at the Royal Danish Yacht Club in Denmark: AUS, BEL, BRA, DEN, ESP, EST, GBR, GER, FIN, NED, NOR, SUI, SWE, USA.
