The Ben Ainslie versus Ed Wright for British Olympic selection in the Finn class took a rather interesting turn this afternoon at the Sydney International Regatta when Wright won Race 3 and Ainslie finished fourth.

Eventually the Finns got away again, storms notwithstanding, and it was Wright who hit the finish line first, followed by 2007 world champion Rafael Trujillo (ESP), Jonas Hoegh Christensen (DEN), and then came Ainslie. Overall, Ainslie still leads the series, just one point clear of the Dane, with a further five points to Trujillo and a third Brit, Giles Scott. Wright is currently in fifth place, 13 points adrift of his Olympic adversary.

In the Tornado catamaran, Darren Bundock/Glenn Ashby’s (AUS) 5-3 results were enough to keep them in front of the game. Just two points behind, the British pair of Leigh McMillan/Will Howden are second overall following their first win of the series in the earlier Race 4. Germany’s Johannes Polgar/Florian Spalteholz are third overall.

The 49ers completed two of their scheduled three races today too. Sailed right in front of Woollahra Sailing Club in teeming rain, the colourful Olympic skiffs found an exclusive piece of breeze.

With five races away, the Portuguese crew of Jorge Lima/Francisco Andrade came good scoring victory in both races to lead the series by seven points from Nathan Outteridge/Ben Austin and third placed Tomasz Stanczyk/Pawel Kuzmicki (POL), with a race drop in place.

Not such a good day for Britain's Campbell-James/Asquith had an 11 and 13 to be in sixth place overall in a very tight group.

Race officials opted to hold only one Laser race instead of the planned two. A few new names in the top three places, including two Norwegian Olympic hopefuls, who scored wins in their respective groups. Following a win in Race 3 yesterday, Kristian Ruth pulled out the stops to take today’s Race 4 in his group as well. Teammate Stian Tuv won the other group.

New Zealand rivals Andrew Murdoch and Mike Bullot remain at the top of the Laser overall, but a lone point away are Andrew Campbell (USA) and Michael Leigh (CAN). Australia’s Tom Slingsby finished 11th for 14th place in the standings; a big lift from the 37th place he found himself in this morning after being disqualified from a win in Race 1 yesterday.

Roelof Bouwmeester (NED) came up trumps today too. Scoring a win yesterday, the Dutchman had a momentary lapse in Races 2 and 3 to drop well down the scoreboard, but a second place today moves him up into seventh in the series, but he cannot afford any more ‘oops’ results.

On other courses, Sarah Blanck (AUS) cemented her place at the top of the Laser Radial leaderboard after scoring a third place in the Race 3. Looking down the barrel of her second Games, Blanck, who has had some coaching from Sydney 2000 bronze medallist Michael Blackburn, is 13 points clear of nearest rival and Olympic campaigner Andrea Brewster (GBR).

Belgium’s Evi Van Acker is next best, on equal points with the British girl. Tania Elias Calles (MEX) is a further two points away, with a second British Olympic campaigner, Lizzie Vickers, a further point adrift.

Sydney 2000 Olympic 470 gold medallist Tom King treated the rest of the fleet to an exercise in how it’s done today; steering in place of Elise Rechichi, he and Rechichi’s regular crew Tessa Parkinson came home third in Race 3, scored in the 470 Men’s event, being a mixed crew. King has not steered a 470 for some years, but has not lost his golden touch.

New Zealanders Carl Evans/Peter Burling won Race 3 of the Men’s today, but Nathan Wilmot/Malcolm Page (AUS) have taken the series lead with a sixth place. Yesterday’s leaders, Ben and Romain Bonnaud, have dropped to fourth after a 26th result today. Dutch brothers Sven and Kalle Coster are now second overall following their fifth place, with the French crew of Pierre Leboucher/Vincent Garos now third.

Israel’s Nike Kornecki/Vered Bouskila lead the 470 Women’s from Youth sailors Stacey Omay/Chelsea Hall (AUS), future Olympic prospects.

The Yngling keelboat series leaders remain unchanged after a further two races today. Krystal Weir/Karyn Gojnich/Angela Farrell’s 3-2 results keeping them three points ahead of boats steered by Katie Spithill and Nicky Souter.
