Ladha/Inkpen dominated the day with a convincing three bullets to extend their lead by 19 points over training partners Mori/Barnes who moved into second ahead of the American's Downing/Brown. FX sailors Rafuse/Boyd are currently sandwiched between two American teams however are within grasp of the overall win. Tomorrow, at 12 noon, the 49er and 49er FX will each race three medal races, in an exciting spectator friendly stadium course held right off the pier at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour.
