Silja Lehtinen and Scott Babbage have won the 2006 29er World Championships in great style! Scoring almost all top 5 finishes, Silja and Scott sailed a beautiful series with their win in the qualifying series leading into the Gold...
In the 29er Worlds fleet, a Finnish helm maintain the top spot for the second day in a row, as Silja Lehtinen and Scott Babbage replace Mikko Hentinen and Miikka Pennanen in pole position ready for gold fleet racing on Thursday.Lehtinen and Babbage racked up 1,1,2 from their three races to put them into the lead on countback over British national champions Paul Brotherton and Mari Shepherd, who posted the same scoreline today. Both pairs are on eight points, with overnight leaders Hentinen and Pennanen four points adrift.RYA Team GBR"s youth national champions Dylan Fletcher and Rob Partridge are the top youth crew, currently in fourth place overall. Teammates and European Champions Huw Humphreys and Max Todd are in sixth, with Denmark"s Niels Joachim Gormsen and Peter Lang sandwiched between the two British youth pairs.
Finland occupy the top two berths of the 105-boat 29er World Championship table, with Mikko Hentinen and Miika Pennanen in the lead on seven points, and top female helm Silja Lehtinen with Australian Scott Babbage close behind on eight points. In the green flight, Lehtinen and Babbage notched up two race wins in races three and four, and another from race five still to count tomorrow, as not all 29er flights managed to get a fifth race in today. However, at press time the regatta jury are considering whether to throw out race four for Lehtinen"s green 29er flight, as the wind reportedly dropped to less than four knots for over five minutes during that race.Overnight leaders and British national champions Paul Brotherton and Mari Shepherd are currently in third, but will be in the frame once again tomorrow as they still have a first to count from race five, and then have a discard to play with.British youth champions Dylan Fletcher and Rob Partridge are just off the overall podium positions in fourth.
Paul Brotherton and Mari Shepherd made no mistakes on the final day of the 29er National Championship at Hayling Island SC. A fifth in the first race of the day was to be their discard and a win in the final race rounded off a smooth performance as they took the title with a nine point margin.Second place went to Dylan Fletcher and Rob Partridge of Draycote SC, with Silja Lehitnen and Scott Babage of Finland, winning the first race to take third and highest placed overseas entry.In the Silver fleet Felix Lyngander and Marcus Dahlavist of Sweden turned it around on the final day with a first and second allowing them to drop their BFD and finish with a comfortable margin.
With a little more wind a few of the familiar faces came to the front. 3 races were all held in the bay for the Gold and silver fleets. Both fleets behaved themselves until the third race when there were a substantial number of black flags from both fleets.In the Gold fleet Paul Brotherton & Mari Shepherd gained a 1,2,3 in spite of a broken tiller extension in the last race, Dylan Fletcher & Rob Partridge after a shaky start in the qualification have pulled up to second with a 3,1,4. The Fin team of Silja Lehitenen & Scott Babage had a black flag in the third race putting them down to 4th and allowing James Peters & Oliver Spensley-Corfield up into 3rd. Probably the most spectacular improvement has come from Will Tremlow and Peter Perea who qualified in 24th place have pulled up to 5th with a 1,2,10.In the Silver fleet it is Ian Simms & John Goldsberry who lead with a comfortable points margin from the Danish team of Henrick Gooard and Sven Kristensen.
A steady but gentle 8 - 10 knots from the south east kicked in at lunch time and the fleet was sent out into Hayling bay and did 4 to catch up yesterdays lost race. Tide was one of the biggest influences over the tactics as well as the mark rounding. Many teams not used to current found themselves drifting into the marks having miss-judged their line. Much spinning was seen at the windward mark!The fleet has now finished its qualification series and the next 2 days will be the final races, the cut at 25 is always harsh but it looks like the final Gold fleet has all the right teams in it. Paul Brotherton & Mari Shepherd are top of the leaderboard followed by Sarah Martin & Nicola Groves who had an outstanding day winning all 4 races in their flight. Silja Lehitnen & Scott Babage from Finland had a steady day to end up lying 3rd while Frances Peters & Kate Sparkes enjoyed the light winds to pull up to 4th.
With the huge 29er fleet split into 2 flights the yellow fleet got away first and is now headed up by Silja Lehitenen & Scott Babbage from Finland, Current European girl champions Hannah Diamond & Olivia Pettit are lying 2nd with Francis Peters & Kate Sparks in third.The Blue fleet sees Tim Saxton & Claire Lasko in the lead with the USA team of Bietit & Matt Noble 2nd and Paul Brotherton & Mari Shepard in 3rd.
A record number of 85 29ers are assembled at Hayling for 2006 National championships.The fleet is split into flights for two days of qualifiers after which the top 25 will go into the gold fleet and the rest into the silver for the finals.With teams in the International Open Category from Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Spain, Sweden & USA all preparing for the Worlds next week the competition will be hot.
