Four more Star sailors League Final races were held yesterday on the azure waters on the plateau off Montagu Bay, starting in 10-12 knot northeasterly winds that built to 15-18 and shifted right for the fourth and final race.
Stand-out competitors were once again Olympic legend Robert Scheidt and Henry Boening. The Brazilian duo won three of today’s four races. In eight out of the 11 races held during the Qualifiers, Scheidt and Boening have finished on the podium. This consistency caused them to finish the qualifier section of the regatta 22 points ahead of Mark Mendelblatt and Brian Fatih in second, with Diego Negri and Frithjof Kleen in third.
With the 15 teams not making the top ten now eliminated, the fifth and final day of racing will narrow the fleet down through quarter and semi final heats and culminate in the four-boat Grand Final shoot out for the 2018 title.
