Israel’s windsurfers experienced their most disappointing day of the World Championships so far on Thursday, with Nimrod Mashiah and Shahar Zubari both losing important ground in Perth, Australia.

Mashiah dropped one place for a second straight day, falling to third overall after ending Thursday’s three races in eighth, 12th and fifth positions, respectively.

Despite his disappointment at failing to keep pace with Dutch leader Dorian van Rijsselberghe, Mashiah can draw some encouragement from the fact that he is still well ahead of his rival for Israel’s one and only windsurfing berth at the London Olympics.

Zubari fell one place to 18th overall after a miserable day in which he finished in 24th, 15th, and 38th.

ith just two more races to come on Saturday before Sunday’s medal race, which will include only the top-10 surfers, Zubari has already picked up 85 negative points, a massive 62 more than Mashiah.

The ISAF World Sailing Championships are the second of four events which will determine who will be Israel’s representative in London.

Zubari currently leads the battle by seven points to one after finishing fourth in September’s European Championships.

Gil Cohen and Vered Buskila return to action in the women’s 470 Class competition on Friday and will be looking to break into the top three after moving up to fourth overall on Wednesday.
