Stu Bithell leading ISAF Worlds in Perth
Our boys, Stu Bithell and Luke Patience, are in the top spot at Perth this evening.
My understanding is that this is the last chance to influance the selection and that up till now it was pretty tight. Looks like they are doing all the right things at the moment. Good luck lads.
oops - bit of a wobble in the last race but still 2nd
Looks like 2 teams are closing in. Will they close it out to two teams with Willmot/Ellis being given the opportunity they richly deserve to take on Patience/Bithel for the slot. Having been only held back by the phenominal AUS team, the RYA owe that to Willmot/Ellis unless they fall away and Patience/Bithel open up a margin and stay in the top 2.
Silly if you ask me, we could easily double our medal count if more than one team were eligable - the chinese won gold, silver and bronze in the table tennis...
Think of what our results would be in the Finn class if 3 boats were allowed in each class!!
Well technically Stu and Luke can take it but 18 points from a possible 18 is very unlikely. Next task match race the Croatians for Silver.
Are Stu and Luke members of MROA by any chance...
Stu's just last year's national champion.
And Boris's ex crew
And 470 2011 Silver Medalist.
Golden rule. Dont thump the media. At least Ben could represent GBR in the wrestling!
