Three more races were conducted today with Tomasini Grinover very much holding his own. Goransson's first-race-of-the-day win moved him up a notch to now sit second overall, sliding Zavadnikov to third on countback.
Japan's Naofumi Kamei on Mamma Aiuto! had a smashing good day nailing two bullets in Race 8 and nine moving him up from fifth overall to fourth. Alessandro Rombelli on Azimut by STIG celebrated a decent day moving him up to round out the top five.
One final race is scheduled for Sunday, the final day of racing - where the next Melges 32 European Champion will be crowned!
