The Radial course finished three races today with American Max Lopez in the lead however CST sailors Claire Merry and Brenda Bowskill are in it to win it with only four points seperating the two, and it all comes down the last two races tomorrow!

It was a field carnage on the skiff courses today with equipment failures a plenty. 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.
