With three more days of racing left, 8 races completed and three to go, it is still South Africa's Even and Johan Vivier who lead the 420 fleet at the 2011 All African Games. Five race wins has put them safely at the front and it is unlikely they will tumble off their winning streak.
Chasing hard, and now with their DNF from the opening race discarded are Angola's Matias Montinh and Paixão Afonso. They have put in a stunning recovery but it seems impossible that they will now be able to improve on their second place. Their teammates Gilson Tenazinha and João Montenegro (ANG) are in third. Mozambique's two teams round out the fourth and fifth places.
Allan Julie continues to dominate the Laser class with a perfect scorecard. Julie, who sailed at the 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008 Olympic Sailign Competition, is the most experienced sailor in the field and is using all his experience. Rudy McNeil (RSA) is in second on 12 points followed by Rodney Govinden (SEY).
Jess Deary (RSA) lost her lead in the Women's Laser Radial after back-to-back disqualifications. This has allowed Brigdet Clayton (RSA) to take the leader with Meggy Gertrude (SEY) in third place.
Yousset Akrout (TUN) has an 11 point lead in the Men's Laser Radial after winning five out of eight races. Stefano Murcia (RSA) is in second place on 20 points with Roy Govinden (SEY) third on 28 points.
And in the Optimist class Ines Gmati (TUN) leads the girls following seven out of eight race wins and David Wilson (RSA) continues to lead the boys.
