Girls favourite Hannah MILLS had an OCS and will have to be both careful and fast for the rest of the regatta. In the meantime Peruvian "veteran" Tania ZIMMERMANN is best girl following a disappointing day for Alessandra Ferlich (ITA).
Lukasz PRZYBYTEK (POL), who seemed well out of contention with a DSQ and two OCSs in the first five races, has admirably refused to give up and scored 2 and 3 for the day.
Today, the individual racing is suspended for two days to allow the team racing championship and a rest day.
16 teams qualify for the team racing on the basis of results in the first five individual races. Top four seeds are Italy, 2002 silver medallists Croatia, Japan and Great Britain, but no one should underestimate the traditional specialists Argentina and Peru. 2002 bronze medallists China rather surprisingly failed to qualify and the surprise (and delighted) qualifiers are the relative novices of Chile.
