Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page of Australia and Great Britain's Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell are neck and neck in the Men's 470 with only a single point separating them at the top of the leader board.
Twenty nine points separates Patience and Bithell in second and Gabrio Zandona and Pietro Zucchetti (ITA) and Lucas Calabrese and Juan de la Fuente (ARG) tied in third on 46 points.
The Australians and Brits have blitzed the field and share five race wins between them as well as several top five results.
'It's a change of scene and change of course tomorrow,' said Belcher. 'We'll come out fighting. We're confident - it's close.'
