Townend/Howarth dominate Fireball worlds

4th May 2010
Townend/Howarth dominate Fireball worlds

Serial world champions Chips Howarth and Vyv Townend (GBR) continue to lead the 2010 Fireball Worlds after day two of sailing in Barbados. The pair have already counted a hat-trick of Fireball World Championships, winning the title in 2003, 2005 and 2009, and have already made their mark in Barbados, winning the international week. Matt Burge and Richard Wagstaff (GBR) are in 2nd place, while David Wade and Tim Saunders (GBR) climbed up the rankings to sit in 3rd.

Noel Butler is still best of the Irish in 16th position.

Barbados served up another beautiful sailing day with sunny skies and warm winds.  Two races were held yesterday in shifty conditions with breeze ranging from 13 – 18 knots.
