In race 2 in winds of 12-13 knots, at the first downwind mark Maslivets (UKR-9), led from Marta Hlavaty (POL). At the second downwind mark, Shreeve had gained places to be third behind POL and the UKR. They held this order to the finish - Shreeve third.

In race 3 at the first downwind mark it was AUS, POL, UKR-9. At the second downwind mark the placings remained the same, with a gap opening up between the first two and the rest of the fleet. The windspeed was 17-20 knots.

In the last race of the day, the wind had built to 18-20 knots with gusts of 23-26 knots. Shreeve contined her dominating performance was first to the downwind mark, she had a huge gap on the rest of the fleet and was never headed, crossing the finish line well ahead of her nearest rivals, UKR-9, ARM-1 (Sarah Herbert).
