Although trends are starting to emerge after 120 matches, the story has yet to be written for the majority of the 64 young sailors competing in the Monaco Optimist Team Race.

 

 

Like a marathon, competitors must dig deep to find the resources required to pull off one good race after another, if they are not to drop down the provisional overall ranking. It’s a skill the Swedes from KSSS have in spades and which has kept them at the top three days in a row.

 

 

With the Monegasques hard on their heels, followed by the Russians from St Petersburg Sailing Academy, the Scandinavians are watching their backs. As the gaps are so narrow, some fierce contests are on the cards for the final day of racing tomorrow in Port Hercule. Rendezvous at 9.00am tomorrow for the finale.
