CII NA Championship and NA YOG Qualifier - Although the top ten places look fairly well established, Marti Llena ESP moved into third place on the strength of two first place finishes in the second and last races of the day. However, he is only two points up on Kevin Otterdijk AHO, winner of the day's first race but they are both well clear of Rahiem Steede BER in fifth place.
Unless something dramatic happens in the final three races, Ian Barrows ISV and Eugene Hendrikx AHO will be in the top two spots. Ian won the third race, is dropping a fourth and a fifth, counting all firsts, seconds and thirds and has an 11 point lead on Hendrikx.
Matinez CUB had a difficult day in the lighter air and dopped behind Bermuda in the country qualifying position. However he is still on course to qualify his country for the Youth Olympic Games.
Sarah Douglas CAN leads the women and is now well clear of Marina Maffessanti JAM. Third is Sarah Stubbs USA with Sanlay Castro CUB and Paloma Esteban Pao DOM rounding out the top five.
Top four Youth Olympic Games country qualifiers are as follows after nine races.
Male: ISV, AHO, BER, CUB
Female: CAN, USA, CUB, DOM
