The 29er World Championship took a turn today as the 102-strong international fleet was divided into Gold, Silver, Bronze and Emerald groups for the Final series and a new overall leader emerged.

Annemiek Bekkering and Jeske Kisters from The Netherlands took the lead of the Championship today after four races. The Dutch pair showed superb skill on the hugely shifty and fluky course to come into their own to day with 2-1-11-2 results in Races 1 to 4. Their six point lead over nearest rivals, James Peters and Ed Fitzgerald (GBR) is well deserved.

The British pairs 12-4-5-10 results reflect the conditions on the course, where breezes ranged anywhere from 3-12 knots, with many holes on the course, it was a case of paying attention and experience.

Steven Thomas/Jasper Warren (AUS) who have twice been at the top of the leaderboard now, dropped to third place today following 16-12-4-3 results. They are one point behind the British duo.

Alexandra Maloney/Blair Tuke (NZL) have lifted today and are now fourth overall, counting a win in Race 4 of the Final series.

Mon Bleddyn and Tom Humpheries (GBR) also suffered an up and down day, after their great performance in the qualifiers. They finished in 8th after 15-6-9-14 always just off the pace of Peters and Fitzgerald.

Max Richardson and Alex Groves (GBR) are in 9th and Becky Diamond and Fiona Hampshire in 17th
