Dempsey’s bullet at the RS:X Worlds

The UK’s Olympic hope posts some great results on the first day of competition in Cadiz…

RS:X World Champion and Olympian racer Nick Dempsey is competing at the RS:X World Championships in Cadiz, Spain. The World Championships is the final event before the London Olympics this summer and, as such, is a vital part of Nick’s Gold medal plans. Neil Pryde recently boosted the prize pot to $45,000, giving the racers a further incentive to be the fastest on the course.

Action in Cadiz.

After the first day of competition, three races were completed and GBR-1 has posted some great results already. Not quite finding his stride in the first race due to shifting winds, Nick came in a very respectable 9th place. In the second race, Dempsey really sailed to his potential, taking the win and a second place in the final race of the day. Sitting in 6th place at the moment, Nick will be sure to climb the ranks over the coming days in Spain.
