Fevas Split into Silver & Gold

Fevas Split into Silver & Gold

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.
