Day three of competition at the RS: X World Championship in Búzios, east of Rio de Janeiro state, was marked by the division of male competitors in gold and silver fleets. In the first half, the gold fleet, are the 33 best placed in the qualifying series, while in the second, the silver fleet, are the other sailors.

With three races completed, with gusts up to 18 knots from the northeast, Dutchman Dorian van Rijsselberghe took the lead with one victory and two second places. 'The wind was good and I’m happy with my results. I’m leading now, but nothing is decided yet. We still have one more day of races before the medal race and Nick and Nimrod are doing a good job. Everything is still very tight and anyone can win', said the gold medalist in London.


The Brazilian Ricardo ‘Bimba’ Winicki lost one position and finished the day in sixth overall. Sailing at home and familiar with the conditions, Bimba had two good results this Monday, but a wrong decision in the second race of the day did not make him happy. 'I went to the right side when I should’ve have gone left. I finished in 16th position, which became my discard,' he said.

Among girls, the Israeli Lee El Korsiz had a perfect day. She won three races and took the lead. 'I had three first places, which makes me very happy. The day was great and I’m looking forward for tomorrow,' celebrated Lee.


On Tuesday men and women will have the last three races. On Wednesday the top ten will do the medal race, with doubled score that cannot be discarded. The others are planned to make a fleet race to compensate for the lack of a race on the first day, due to the light winds.
