Another long yet productive day on the Womens Match racing Course as the Race Committee caught up on the matches lost Monday due to the light winds in the morning.
At the conclusion of Stage One, the top 3 from each of the two groups advance to the Gold Group and automatically qualify for the Quarter Final and the next 3 from each group will sail in the Repechage. The top 2 from tomorrows Repechage Round Robin will take the last two places in the Quarter Finals. Meanwhile the Gold Group will sail a round robin to determine the seeding of the Quarter Finals.
The first teams to move on came from Group B as Olivia Price (AUS), Lucy Macgregor (GBR), and Tamara Echegoyen (ESP) earned their spots in the Gold Group. The next 3, Claire Leroy (FRA), Stephanie Hazard (NZL), and Silja Lehtinen (FIN) will sail in the Repechage.
And at the end of the day it was Anna Tunnicliffe (USA), Sally Barkow (USA), and Mandy Mulder (NED) from Group A who topped the table and will go into the Gold Group. While Ekaterina Skudina (RUS), Silvia Roca (ESP), and Renee Groeneveld (NED) will have to continue to fight in the Repechage to try to earn a chance to move on.
Racing begins at 1000 tomorrow with the Repechage round Robins followed by a few flights of the Gold Round Robins.
