TOP TEN TEAMS ADVANCE TO THE MEDAL RACE OF THE 52 TROFEO PRINCESA SOFIA07 Apr 2023
The Japanese team, Keiju Okada and Miho Yoshioka, have one hand on the gold medal after scoring a 3rd place in the last 470 Mixed gold fleet race.
This puts the Japanese 18 points clear of last year’s winners, local heroes Jordi Xammar and Nora Brugman (ESP). The only realistic chance of the Spanish overtaking the current leaders is if Xammar/ Brugman win the double-points Medal Race with the Japanese back in 10th and last place. More realistically the Spanish will be looking to defend the silver from Germany’s reigning World Champions, Luise Wanser and Philipp Autenrieth 5 points further back.
