The Nacra 17 fleet witnessed an incredible performance by the top three teams, led by John Gimson and Anna Burnett, sitting comfortably in first with 41 points, followed by Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti (49 points) and Gianluigi Ugolini and Maria Giubilei (52 points).

Read more about their dominance.

Yesterday, Germans Marla Bergmann and Hanna Wille won all three 49erFX races, rising in the rankings from 15th to 4th place. Helene Næss with Marie Ronningen (NOR) maintain the lead, while the German duo gets closer to an Olympic berth against the Italians.

In the 49er, Rual and Amoros take the lead. Despite a challenging evening with a minor protest, the French duo secured three top-10 finishes, but remain extreamly close in points with the Polish team Buksak and Wierzbicki. The battle for the single European qualification spot for the Olympics intensifies, with Ireland and Italy vying for the position.
