Zach Railey (USA) dominated the third day of racing at Kieler Woche 2011, taking the overall lead in the Finns with two race wins.

The third day in Kiel, Germany brought a variety of winds ranging from 12-17 knots along with cloudy skies and more tough racing. For the first race of the day, Zach Railey battled against the two French sailors Thomas Le Breton (FRA) and Lobert for line honours. In the second race Ed Wright placed second while Lobert got another third place finish.

Railey said of his day, 'The weather was better today with only a little bit of rain and the wind was still strong but shifty coming from the land. Today I had a great back and forth race with both the French sailors in the first race. I think the lead must have changed ten times and we all finished within two boat lengths of each other. It was a great race between all of us.'

'In the second race again it was both the French sailors, Ed, myself, Deniss and Björn. I was able to get a lead on the second upwind and held that to the finish. With the wind shifting so much the final results in each race always came down to the end and it's been tight racing.'

Björn Allansson SWE) is in seventh place overall after scoring 8, 4 today. He said, 'Today was another physical day in Kiel. In the second race I was able to take the pin end start and round just behind Le Breton at the top mark, and passed him on the downwind. I finally finished in fourth after Zach Railey, Ed Wright and Jonathan Lobert.'

'For me this is a great week and I am learning a lot, both new things as well as being reminded of old stuff. It's close racing with many shifts so I always have to stay 100 percent alert, and try to calculate the next move. I'm having a great time so far.'

'It was the right choice to hit the left on five or six of today's upwinds, but the tricky part was to find the perfect time to tack over. The wind was also today like prior days shifty and gusty, but to a lesser extent than the last few days, making the tactics of today slightly easier.'

Two more races are scheduled for Tuesday with the final race and the medal race for the top 10 on Wednesday.
