|4th Day of Racing Lee secures Gold medal|
Israeli sailor Lee-El Korsiz is three-time RS: X world champion in Brazil
The men’s event will finish tomorrow; the British Nick Dempsey could be the first sailor to win two RS:X world titles among men
Búzios - The RS:X Worlds will end tomorrow in Búzios, Brazil, but the Israeli-Lee El Korsiz is already celebrating another title, the third in a row. With light winds, the Race Committee did only two of the three races scheduled for today and Lee won the first and was 18th in the second, which became her discard. With this result, she opens 21 points lead that secures her Gold medal.
“I have 21 points over Maayan, which is enough to secure the championship. I am very happy, it’s my third consecutive title and now I’ll have to do one more tattoo”, she said showing a big star tattoo that represents each one of her victories.
Among men, the Brazilian Ricardo Winicki, Bimba, made the second best average of the day, finishing second and sixth. He returned to fifth place overall, tied with Byron Kokkalanis GRE third, and Nimrod Maschia ISR in fourth.
“Being back in the top ten in the world is great. I’m feeling good, feeling at home. On the second race I choose the wrong side, doing the first rounding in 18th, but I managed to recover. The Windsurf is very fast and it?s not possible to do a match racing at the medal race. You have to sail like it?s the first race of the championship, go out there and win”, he said.
If the day was good for Bimba, Dutchman Dorian van Rijsselberge, the Olympic champion in London, can not say the same. He could not sail well in light winds and dropped to second place, nine points behind the British Nick Dempsey, the silver inLondon 2012.
“In the first race I went to the left side and the wind got stronger from the right. In the second race I managed to make a good start and went to the right side, and didn?t see the pressure that came from the left, which resulted again in a bad race”, he said.
Dempsey says he is confortable for the last day. “Today the wind was weaker, which makes things slower. The wind was shifting again, very demanding tactically. For the medal race, is good to do the right thing at the right time, without much planning”, said the British that can be the first two time world champion of RS: X. The Englishman won the competition in 2009, racing at home in Weymouth.
Tomorrow, the medal race is scheduled for 12pm (1500GMT) at Búzios Vela Clube, in Maguinhos Beach. Only the top ten men and women will race. This is the most important race of the championship and has double score, cannot be discarded and its result will be used as the first tiebreaker. The other sailors will go to the water too, to do a single fleet race, after de medal race.

Mashich And Freitas On Top In Brazil
Whilst Mashich won the open title the South American title went to Ricardo Santos (BRA) who takes the title for the sixth time and will represent the Brazilian sailing team throughout 2013.
Byron Kokkalanis (GRE) was sandwiched in between Mashich and Santos as he took a well deserved silver. But the plaudits were left for Santos who continues to be a mainstay on the circuit having sailed in his first Olympic Games at Sydney 2000 and has an eye on fifth Olympics in his home country come 2013.
“This achievement is the result of the dedication and support of many people,” said Santos. “It is the result of a lot of determination and a lot of passion for my family, team, friends and sponsors. I try to return the water encouragement and affection I get from all of them and, this week, everything went very well.”
Freitas dominated the women’s fleet and racked up an impressive run of first and second place results. She comfortably took gold ahead of Bruna Martinelli (BRA) with London 2012 Olympic gold medallist Marina Alabau (ESP) rounding off the podium.
