Brewster & Tidey Take Another Top Ten Result in Buenos Aires

18th November 2015

Royal Irish Yacht Club pairing Andrea Brewster and Saskia Tidey added a sold ninth to their scoresheet yesterday in the only race of the day to keep them in sight of Rio Qualification at this week's 49erfx World Championships in Buenos Aires.

This puts the Providence Team IRL pair in 12th overall and crucially within the top three nations seeking to qualify for 2106.

Races were attempted on a patchy ENE course, but the first race was abandoned on the second leg due to absolutely no pressure to be had course wide. FX sailors all felt the angst and pangs of boredom as they waited roughly an hour and a half for a steadier, yet still very light, southerly to build and only produce one race for the day.

The Irish 49er duo Ryan Seaton and Matt McGovern, from Belfast Lough took a 13th and 16th place in the only two races of the day. This leaves them in 31st overall, about half way down the overall fleet. The men’s 49er fleet was postponed from midday on until about 3:30pm. The breeze at this stage was less variable than the morning and stayed ESE ranging from 8-12 knots.
