The event the first major international title for the iGFoil has attracted 200 competitors in the Mens and Womens fleet for the class which will make its Olympic debut at Paris2024.

Sailing in the Qualification Round where the 154 Mens entries are split into Blue and Yellow fleets, Armit dropped out of the top ten overall to lie in 17th while Veerle ten Have had a very good day to lie in 10th overall - a big jump from being 33rd overnight. She was helped by the introduction of a second discard from her points score, allowing her to drop the BFD and 28th places acquired yesterday from her series points score.

Armit used the double discard to blot up a couple of his indiscretions being a 45th and a 16th from Day 2, his other places were a second 16th place and best place on the day of a 10th.
