Major changes in some of the classes yesterday, due to the light and shifty wind around 6 to 8 kn, but usually, the leaders could defend their positions. Ben Ainslie GBR extended his lead in the Finns with another bullet, and the second, Jan-Pieter Postma NED, is now already 13 points back. Giles Scott GBR follows on rank 3. Charbonnier/Mion FRA too pulled clear from Leboucher/Garos FRA now 10 points behind on rank 2 of the 470 men. Belcher/Page AUS are 3rd. In the 470 women, the advantage of Tara Pacheco/Berta Betanzos ESP is even more, as Giulia Conti/Giovanna Michol ITA is 26 points behind. Hannah Mills/Sakia Clark GBR are 3rd. The best of the day with two bullets are Emmanuelle Rol/Hélène Defrance FRA/SUI advancing on rank 5 overall. Robert Scheidt/Bruno Prada BRA are 19 points ahead of Szabo/Strube USA in the Starboats. Rohart/Ponsot are 3rd. The only leaderchange happened in the 49ers with Pietro and Gianfranco Sibello ITA now on top ahead of the best of the day Jonas Warrer/Sören Hansen DEN and Fletcher/Sign GBR. Piotr Myszka POL with two race wins is now only two points behind Shahar Zubari ISR in the RS:X men windsurfers. Winning 6 out of 8 heats, Blanca Manchon ESP is clearly in command with the RS:X-women windsurfers, ahead of Charline Picon FRA and - new - Alessandra Sensini ITA. After the Gold Round Robin and the Repechage, the quarter-finals today in the Women-Match-Race are McGregor GBR/Tulloch USA, Le Berre FRA/Barkow USA, Groeneveld NED/Echegoyen ESP and Skudina RUS/Leroy FRA.
