Thursday at the Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta 300 International sailors were relishing the perfect sailing conditions found here in Weymouth and Portland; demonstrating why it has been selected as the sailing venue for the 2012 Olympics.

The sailing was fiercely competitive today in all of the classes with some interesting shifts in the rankings. The wind provided fantastic sailing in the morning with stronger wind conditions. Later in the day the wind dropped to a light southerly breeze for the afternoon, testing the sailor’s ability in the lighter winds.

Southampton based 21 year-old Finn sailor, Giles Scott, has extended his fantastic lead over Ed Wright, 9 points ahead at the end of Day 3.

There was all change at the top of the 49er fleet with the Skandia Team GBR pairing of John Pink and Rick Peacock taking the lead after 2nd, 3rd and 8th finishes. The new British pairing of 22 year old Dave Evans and Double Olympic medallist Simon Hiscocks climbed three places in on the leader board to finish the day in third place overall after finishing 3rd, 1st and 6th in the day’s three races.

Team GBR’s Beijing Olympic representatives Stevie Morrison and Ben Rhodes had a bad start to the day with an unlucky 13th in the first race, they then went on to finish 2nd in the next and win the last race of the day and now lie second overall.

In the Laser class, London 2012 hopeful Laser sailor Nick Thompson had another flawless day, winning both the day’s races and stamping his authority on the next Olympic venue.

The Laser Radials class was again dominated by China’s Olympic sailing hero Lijia Xu, in an almost flawless performance she has now finished in the top three in all but one of the weeks races. Laser Radial world Bronze medallist Andrea Brewster kept a hold on second place despite a mixed day on the water finishing in 15th and 2nd she is closely followed by fellow Skandia Team GBR performance squad sailor Charlotte Dobson who lies in third after a 2nd and 8th in today’s racing.

In the RS:X 9.5 windsurfing class, French sailor Henry Quentin was able to take advantage of the conditions finishing both races of the day in fourth place and ending the day in third place overall jumping one place up in the leader board. Israel’s Olympic bronze medallist Shahar Zubari and GBR Olympic representative Nick Dempsey who finished once place behind Zubari in Beijing, continued their close rivalry exchanging first and second place results in both races of the day

Ali Master took all the plaudits in the RS:X 8.5 class, the 16 year old RYA Youth squad member won both races of the day. Overnight leader Blanca Manchon kept her lead despite getting off to a bad start with a OCS (over the course start) in the first race, she hit top form in the next race with a second place and now leads by two points. Weymouth’s Olympic Bronze medallist Bryony Shaw stayed in third place with 4th and 3rd finishes.

The 470 fleet had a Spanish feel today with both the men’s and women’s fleets finishing with Spanish sailors on top of the leader board. Santander based sailors Pablo Santurde Del Arco and Abelardo Quevedo Torices finished 2nd in the first race of the day and 12th in the second (which they were able to discard) leaving them 3 points ahead of yesterdays leaders Nic Asher and Elliot Willis.

In the women’s 470s the positions stay the same with Berta Betanzos and Tara Pacheco (ESP) again topping the leader board closely followed by the RYA Development squad members Hannah Mills and Katrina Hughes, both 20 years old, Sweden’s Lisa Ericsion and Astrid Gabrielsson complete the top three.
