Yachting-It’s Domingue’s title!


17-June-2009

Winner Domingue sails his Optimist boat

It was going to a real battle between the two youngsters as they jostled for position in search of the first title of the year.

Domingue was simply the best sailor on the day, winning both races – his fourth in eight races – to finish with 10 points – three less than De Sylva who was fourth and second in races seven and eight for a total of 13 points.

De Sylva won three races, while Aubrey Sophola, who was ranked fourth overall with 28 points, won the cup’s first race.
Guilly Esther finished third overall with 25 points.

The other places were occupied by Nicholas Adam (fifth with 37 points), Jonathan Tamatave (sixth with 37), Greg Esparon (seventh with 65), Jean-Luc Lebon (eighth with 71), Jonathan Fred (ninth with 72), Charles Ally (10th with 80), Mohamed Malbrook (11th with 81) and Allison Hoareau (12th with 81).

In watersports, competitors with the least points win.
In the SYA Laser Cup ‘A’, Rodney Govinden is the new leader with 18 points after winning race eight and finishing second to twin brother Roy in race seven.

Rodney was absent for the fifth and sixth races after winning the first four in his standard boat, while his brother Roy won races five, six and seven after missing the first four. He remains sixth with 38 points.

Hansel Esther, who sails a radial boat and was third in both races on Saturday, loses top spot but is second with 19 points.
With four more races left in the Laser SYA Cup ‘A’, competition is expected to be stiff for the final positions.

The following are the overall standings in this class: Rodney Govinden (18 points), Hansel Esther (19), Kenrick Victor (28), Meggy Gertrude (31), Ian Valentin (36), Roy Govinden (38), Ricky Adeline (50), Daniel De Lafontaine (57), Paul Morel (59) and Beth Gertrude (62).
