On day two of the Techno 293 Asian Championships, Chan Tsz Kit (HKG-17) started the day with a bullet in the first race, but Cheng Ho Yin (HKG-36) took the bullet in the second race, then a seventh in the third race of the day became Chan Tsz Kit's discard and thus he maintains his seven point lead over Wong Chun Yan (HKG-13). Cheng Ho Yin is now hot on his heels, just one point behind and overtaking Ikeda Kensei to step up to the third podium position.

Conditions were a little lighter than the day before ranging from 9-14 knots for the first race to 12-17 knots later in the day. It's challenging racing and this is reflected in the variable results right down the fleet. RS:X sailor Audrey Yong has a lot of experience and she said that Singapore is a very tricky place to sail. She advised the young Techno sailors to remember every race is new, no-one will definitely win and to just give something extra each time.

In the Youth Girl's Division, Thailand's Duangkamon Phongern and Hong Kong's Choi Wing Chi are locked together on equal points at the top of the leaderboard. Both have taken three wins and three second places. This is indeed an exciting battle to watch. They are way ahead of the next two Japananese girls, Jiijima Rina and Watanabe Junna who also have equal points. There is only room for three on the podium!

The Techno 293 youth boys and girls are also racing to qualify their nations in the 2014 Youth Olympic Games in China. Hong Kong are already qualified - and there are three slots available in both boys and girls. Japan are looking safe to secure a place in the boys - and THA in the girls ... but still all to play for to grab those remaining places.….
