With only one result out of five so far in the top half of her fleet (two groups with 24 in each group), it looks like Annalise Murphy sailing with Katie Tingle will not make the 49erFX gold fleet at the World Cup Series in Genoa.
The Olympic silver medallist and Tingle had a 13th and a 19th yesterday in tricky light winds at their first World Cup event together.
“Annalise and Katie are doing really well considering it's their first competition in a new boat,” said Rory Fitzpatrick, Head Coach with Irish Sailing. “They aren’t quite into Gold fleet yet but they are on a steep learning curve and making rapid progress along it."
Murphy and Tingle are currently in 32nd place overall in their 49-boat event.
Qualification rounds in most classes conclude today and stage final races on Saturday to determine medal race top-10 finishers.
