The Royal Ocean Racing Club has bowed to the inevitable and scrapped the level rating ILC 46 for the Admiral's Cup next year, creating instead a big boat band to be raced on handicap. In welcoming the move, the Royal Yachting Association called for similar provisions in the class two 40- footers.

Adam Gosling, of Britain, yesterday won the Etchells World Championship at Cowes by just one point. Gosling, who was second in each of the last four races, beat the American Judd Smith, who had his third win of the six-race series.
