Royal St. George's Mark Delany is in eighth place at the Vintage Yachting Games in Copenhagen while clubmate George Miller in 11th overall.
Four races were held for the 12 Foot Dinghy Class on Thursday, because there is a large storm heading towards Copenhagen, which may create unsailable conditions for small boats.
Having won all of the races except for his discarded race, Wim Bleeker from Holland has shown his complete superiority over the rest of the fleet.
Behind Wim, the leaderboard has been given a huge reshuffle, partly as a result of the discarded race kicking in. Sipke Schuurmans overall position has risen from 12th to 4th place, and Jaap van Hasselt has dropped from 5th to 12th, but despite that, the Dutch are still maintaining a stranglehold on the top seven places.
A significant issue yesterday was the wind which was very strong when the dinghies launched this morning, as a result of which some helmsmen did not like the conditions, and in the interests of safety, they returned to port. However, for the others who persisted, on reaching the race area off Skovshoved Havn. about 4km from their base the wind direction changed, and the wind dropped progressively to a gentle 5-8 kts. Thus, some boats only competed in the afternoon races.
The PRO does not expect that it will be possible to race today.
