It was a mixed day for most out on the water, with the top of the leaderboard changing yet again. With Britain's Nic Asher and Elliot Willis not sailing following the injury to Willis in the collision the previous day, overnight race leaders Nick Rogers and Joe Glanfield (GBR) dropped to third position on 46 points after a 12th and fifth but remain optimistic about their chances.

“It was crazy, unpredictable light winds out there today which makes it really hard to stay consistent,” Glanfield said. “We don’t really mind losing the lead as long as we’re still in with a chance to win,” the Athens silver medalist added.

New fleet leaders are Alvaro Marinho and Miguel Nunes (POR) after a sixth and a third place. They lead by four points from Gideon Kliger and Udi Gal (ISR) who continued to climb the ladder and after a second and 11th are now in outright second position on 45 points.

Marinho/Nunes have been among the world’s most consistent 470 crews for the past five years but are yet to crack it for a world title. They are yet to post a podium results however finished in fourth place last year and in 2003.

470 Women

Sail Melbourne Asia Pacific Regatta winners Erin Maxwell and Isabelle Kinsolving (USA) are continuing their outstanding form at the top of the 470 Women’s world championships leaderboard.

Maxwell and Kinsolving out-muscled 470 heavyweights Marcelien de Koning and Lobke Berkhout (NED) who appeared to be taking control of their fourth world title. It was much lighter conditions today and the Americans admitted that while they were not chosen to head to Beijing, they were really only here to prove a point to themselves.

“If we win the world titles we’ll be a whole lot less bummed about missing selection for the Olympics,” Kinsolving said.

“We didn’t want to stop sailing after such a downer, so we picked ourselves up and want to finish on a more positive note,” Maxwell added with a smile.

The Dutch girls could manage only a 10th and 18th and are now four points behind on 43, three points clear of Aussie girls Elise Rechichi and Tessa Parkinson. Rechichi and Parkinson rose from fifth to outright third position with fabulous finishes today in fifth and second place.

Italian crew Giulia Conti and Giovanna Micol remain in contention on 48 points, with two finals races remaining, followed by a double points top 10 medal race on Wednesday.

Britain's Christina Bassadone and Saskia Clark are in 16th place.

Racing is scheduled to start at 1pm tomorrow.
