QUALIFICATION ROUND IS OVER FOR 470 MEN. SINGLE SERIES FOR WOMEN'S FLEET IN AARHUS 2018
Swedish 2018 European Champions, Anton Dahlberg and Frederik Bergström still top the leaderboard ahead of the two Japanese crews after winning their second race. Australia’s Mat Belcher and William Ryan, the silver medallists in Rio, gold medallists in London 2012, moved ominously up to fourth and Britain’s Luke Patience celebrated his 32nd birthday by winning his first race with crew Chris Grube.
The Men’s 470 fleet will now split and the gold fleet will have 32 teams.
Ai Kondo Yoshida and Miho Yoshioka continue to deliver on their form in 2018 and underline Japan’s strength in the 470. There are 13 Japanese teams across the men’s and women’s 470. Hannah Mills, the Olympic champion in Rio and new crew Eilidh McIntyre, stay just behind second.
