  • Shifty 11-16 knot wind throughout the day
  • Emma Wilson stays in contention in fourth overall - one point off the podium with 2,3,(15)

  • Kieran Martin ninth in the silver fleet

What they said:

Emma Wilson (20, Christchurch, Dorset), RS:X women: "We had three races today in an offshore shifting breeze. The racing was so close all the way to the finish and I had two really good races. The last one was not as good but I made a comeback to make it a little better. With three more races tomorrow I think anything can happen as it's all really close."

Tom Squires (26, Kingston Bagpuize, Oxfordshire), RS:X men: "It was a crazy, cross offshore day with a course of two breezes. I was really struggling off the line and my lack of pace was making it difficult to get to the corners. It was almost essential to get to one of the corners and I just didn't have the speed to get there. It's the first time I've struggled for pace in big breeze for years so I really need to get that sorted."

RS:X results can be found here.
