49er & 49erFX Europeans - Day 4 is Ladies Day

For Spanish 49erFX sailors Carla and Marta Munté, the racing was well worth the wait

The former 29er world champions (2014) Carla and Marta Munté (5,4,2) take the 49erFX lead with an eight point lead over former leaders Helene Naess and Marie Roningen.

Reigning European Champions Tina Lutz and Susann Beucke (GER) stormed off to an easy race 1 victory, but gave most of their gains with a 16 in the second race, finishing the day in 11th overall.

Norway's Helene Naess and Marie Ronningen (8,15,4) drop to second and Britain's Sophie Weguelin and Sophie Ainsworth (4,8,10) are just one point back in third place.

Julia Gross and Hanna Klinga (2,1,16) of Sweden were the only one in the leading group to win a race and move up into fourth, ahead of the USA's Stephanie Roble and Margaret Shea.

Charlotte Dobson and Saskia Tidey (19,UFD,7) drop back to 14th overall.

No 49er racing as PRO David Campbell James sent the men's fleet home almost immediately after they arrived at the race area due to the approaching storm.
