#RSFeva - Entries for the 2013 RS Feva Worlds in Tuscany broke the 100 mark on Friday 1 February, as Yachts and Yachting reports.

More than five months remain till the start of the event at Marina di Grosetto, which runs from 19-26 July - but with just 180 places in total, the rush is surely on for Feva sailors to stake their claim.

So far 14 countries across three continents will be represented, with newcomers including the Czech Republic, Lithuania and Switzerland, while Los Angeles will also send a boat for the first time.

Full details of the event including entry forms and the Notice of Race are available vis the RS Feva Worlds website. The entry deadline is 30 June 2013 but with more than half the available spots booked already, there's no time to waste.

Here's hoping Ireland will be as well represented as we were in 2010, when 34 Irish Feva sailors took part in the Worlds at Carnac in France.

A day of consistent results for Irish teams at Carnac yesterday saw the top six split evenly between British and Irish crews at the RS Feva Worlds. 

Vicky Cudmore and Amy Harrington leapfrogged into third place, taking full advantage of the strong sea breezes which reached 20 knots during racing yesterday. 

Top Irish boat overnight, Brendan Lyden and Marc Cudmore improved from seventh to sixth, but were also passed by the crew of Dermot Lyden and Peter Stokes, who now sit in fourth. 

The top two boats enjoy a 31-point cushion ahead of the bronze, so the real race on today's final day of racing is for bronze, with third to sixth split by just nine points.

As the 140-boat fleet at the RS Feva World Championships splits into silver and gold, it's Brendan Lyden and Marc Cudmore who lead the Irish charge, seventh overall.

In a range of wind strengths yesterday, from 10 to 18 knots, it was the British pairing of Jack Hawkins and Christopher Thomas who put in the most impressive performance, recovering from an early stumble to 16th with two straight wins to finish the three-race day on the water on a high.

Eleven of Ireland's crews qualified for the gold fleet, an impressive achievement, and there are two more days of racing left.
