Conditions remained light during Day 4 of the Rolex Miami OCR with sunny skies and winds of between 9 to 12 knots.
First on the racecourse were the Star fleet and Irish duo Peter O’Leary and David Burrows. For the third day in a row they scored top 10 results with a 7th and a 6th. They will enter tomorrow’s final day of racing, before Saturday’s Medal Race, in 7th overall. The final two races tomorrow will decide the top 10 boats and the competitors for the Medal Race, and eventually the podium finish. Annalise Murphy in the Laser Radial is also in serious contention for Saturday’s Medal Race. She remains 9th overall having finished 6th and 27th today with the 27th being discarded.
The Irish Paralympic team in the Sonar class had their best day so far of the championship with two 5th places. A protest yesterday evening resulted in their disqualified from yesterday’s final race but that didn’t prevent them from moving up one place on the leader board to 7th overall. While independent non-carded Laser sailor James Espey slipped to 22nd overall following two 35th places.
All results are provisional.
