• Aarhus Day 6: USA Standings

    While we await today's reports and photos to be processed, here is a quick look at the current standings of top
    USA Competitors currently competing in Aarhus at the World Championships... Monday's sailing was light and several
    events were postponed due to the light conditions, today's weather was looking more promising:

    Weather forecast:
    The warm front passing should bring higher temperatures and hopefully more stable wind on Tuesday in the Bay of Aarhus. The easterlies of 8-10 knots, will gradually swing south in the late afternoon under the influence of some small lows on the west coast of Denmark and building to a maximum of 12 knots.

    The divergence between forecast and what transpired on Monday was caused by the warm front passing north, which spread its influence 50km further south than expected.

    As you can see, only Paige Railey maintains a podium position, and wonder kid Daniela Moroz, the shoe in for 1st in womens kiteboard collected 5 DNC's today, we have a message out to find out why.

    (Breaking... Daniela WON every race today but leader jerseys sailors were mistakenly reported as DNC... Whew!)

    Stuart McNay and David Hughes are currently 9th in Finn and Charlie Buckingham is currently 11th in Laser. Other than that, not much to brag about.
