CII NA Championship and NA YOG Qualifier - Eugene Hendrikx AHO (Curacao) and Ian Barrows ISV (US Virgin Islands) consolidated their positions at the top of the standings on day two with only a point separating them and the three Curacao sailors, Hendrix, Otterdijk (Third overall) and Van Aanholt (sixth overall and race 5 winner) have established themselves as the top team in the event.

Cuban entry Lester Hernandez Martinez was sitting in third overall when the results were posted but lost his fourth place finish in race 3 with a disqualification. This dropped him to seventh but Cuba still remains among the top four teams.

Top Bermudan is consistent Rathiem Steede in fourth with all his finishes between fourth and sixth.

Winds speeds lower than day one but were still in the high teens at the start of racing. They had tapered off to 12 - 15 kts by the end of racing.

There was a bit of excitement when the airport authority politely requested (read insisted!) that the course be moved at least 1/4 mile away from the end of the runway. At that point the weather mark was right under the glide path. If one scales off the top of the CII mast, it would appear that Air Canada is about100 feet off the water.

In the women's scoring Canadian Sarah Douglas continues to lead but Marina Maffessanti JAM is only a point behind. Marina cannot qualify for the YOG.

Top four Youth Olympic Games country qualifiers are as follows after five races:

Male: AOH, ISV, BER, CUB
Female: CAN, USA, CUB, DOM
