After another extremely light wind day in Marseille only the women’s 49erFX fleet 2013 49er and 49erFX World Championships managed to put any results on the board.

In the 49er Marcus Hansen and Josh Porebski remain in third with Peter Burling and Blair Tuke in fourth on equal points.

In the 49erFX New Zealand’s Alex Maloney and Molly Meech have lifted their overall standing to lie in seventh overall at the end of day three. Today they placed sixth, 18th and second in their three races sailed.

Coach, Hamish Willcox reports from Marseille; 'There was no racing today, after a long wait for the 49er top 40 sailors. They were scheduled to race after the FX girls.'

'Another light sea breeze day of 3-5 knots with chop and swell making conditions very stressful for sailors. Four races scheduled and none completed after a long day finishing at 1830. This means we miss the semi-finals and go straight to a twenty boat gold fleet finals tomorrow.'

'Pete and Blair were in the purple vest today as the fastest downwind boat from yesterday. This is a bit like having the dotted shirt in the tour of France.'

Racing runs for six days with the world titles for the Olympic skiff classes set to be decided on Sunday 29th September.
