With a bullet (win) in race sixth, she moves herself into podium contention. Head Coach Ken Dool laments, 'she sailed a great race. No high risk business, just a solid race.'

Lee Parkhill elbows his way back into the top Laser crew in 11th, with Tom Ramshawin 16th.

On the Finn course, Greg Douglas hangs onto sixth place after a difficult race 5. Many of the boys were black flagged thus putting their overall positioning in jeapardy.

Canadian Nacras had a full plate of racing today and Canadian team Ramsay-Girke move into the final days in sixth overall.

SKUD team John McRoberts-Jackie Gay secured their first win of the event, edging out the Brits and suggesting they are not settling for second!

Sonar team Tingley-Campbell-Lutes hang out in fourth place in a tight battle with FRA, GBR, USA.
