Sweden’s Ola Pettersson had a perfect Repechage in Tønsberg this afternoon, winning and securing his place into the main race later today.
For fellow Swede, Bimba Sjöholm, it was heart break as engine problems brought her weekend to an untimely end.
Uvis Slakteris from Latvia was second while Norwegian school teacher Mette B. Bjerknæs put on a gritty display in her Moore hull securing third overall.
Edgaras Riabko was the fourth and final qualifier from the Repechage.
