World Championships - Day 4 Michela & Ryan win with a race to spare

Two girls sailing a grey GRP to windward with spray flying

Michaela & Ryan Robinson have built an unassailable lead on day 4 of the Mirror Worlds (dispite retiring with a main halyard problem from race 10) but the next 3 places are tight with Eleanor Keers & Izzy Pugh (GBR), Gemma Keers & Imogen Bellfield (GBR) and Simon & Tyson Barwood (AUS) all vying for a podium place. One race is planned for today to finish off the regatta - the wind is up and the sun is shining. Another day in paradise!

More day 4 photos from Trevor Wilkins. (Yes, I know Trevor says day 3, but the date of the photos is the 8th which is day 4, maybe he is not counting the day when racing was postponed)
