Irish Storm the Feva Worlds Top Six

30th July 2010
Irish Storm the Feva Worlds Top Six

A day of consistent results for Irish teams at Carnac yesterday saw the top six split evenly between British and Irish crews at the RS Feva Worlds. 

Vicky Cudmore and Amy Harrington leapfrogged into third place, taking full advantage of the strong sea breezes which reached 20 knots during racing yesterday. 

Top Irish boat overnight, Brendan Lyden and Marc Cudmore improved from seventh to sixth, but were also passed by the crew of Dermot Lyden and Peter Stokes, who now sit in fourth. 

The top two boats enjoy a 31-point cushion ahead of the bronze, so the real race on today's final day of racing is for bronze, with third to sixth split by just nine points.

Full results are HERE.
