420 JR. WORLDS – Race Day 4 Serves up 2 More Race Wins for Kavas Brothers
Superb racing conditions for race day 4 at the 2120 420 Worlds, which marked the start of the six-race final series. With fleets now split into gold, silver and bronze for the 420 Open and Gold, Silver for the 420 Ladies, many of the top teams faced off against each other for the first time. Races 7 and 8 were held in an 18-20 knot breeze, before dropping down to around 12 knots for race 9.
In the 420 Open fleet, the Greek brothers, Alex and George Kavas, continue to headline the fleet with race wins, notching up another two today. Equipment failure in race 9 forced a retirement for Spain’s Alex and David Charles and pushes them down to third overall, and with a 21 point deficit to the Greeks. Up into second go Guillaume Pirouelle/Valentin Sipan (FRA).
In the 420 Ladies fleet, a takeover at the top of the leaderboard after race 8 by Singapore’s Rachel Lee/Cecilia Low, as they seized an advantage from Chile’s Nadja Horwitz/Sofia Middleton who posted an unlucky 13th. All was back to the original order after race 9 though, with the Chilean pair securing race victory and pushing themselves back to the front, with Singapore second overall. A 13, 16, 4 from Jessica Lavery/Georgina Mothersele (GBR) moves them up into third overall.
