All the top-ranked boats are from Class A, while the top-ranked Class B boat is Estonian Ott Kikkas’s brand new Matteo Polli-designed Corsa 915 SUGAR, helmed this week by Branko Brcin. SUGAR ended the day’s four races in 7th place overall, a distant 21 points behind Sukru Sanus’s Farr 25 ONEDESIGN, who is leading the regatta on a scoreline of 3-2-4-1, one point clear of runner-up NIMBUS, a J/70 helmed by Saruhan Cinay.
The next-nearest Class B boat to SUGAR in the standings is Sinem Ergun’s SB20 HARMONIX, helmed by Guray Zunbul, who are in 12th place after four races.
The forecast for tomorrow predicts light air returns again to Istanbul, with raceable conditions hoped for in the afternoon. If three more races are scored, competitors will have one discard for the final results.
