Langkawi, Malaysia

Following their win in the Team racing part of the World Championships, Thailand's best were back competing against each other today in today's three races.
While there is still time for change at the top the sailors leading the event can start feeling more 'at ease' with just two days of racing to go. Noppakao Poonpat (THA) took victory on the second race of the day and finished 11 and 9 in the other two, consolidating her as the leader of the fleet. She is the only sailor that has finished among the top 15 in all the races.

Ryan Lo Jun Han from Singapore had better results than Noppakao today (1, 2 and 8) but a couple of bad races on the previous stopped him catching up with Noppakao and he is now 15 points behind her in second place. In third place and tied in points with Ryan is Jirawat Jadklay from Thailand.

The Asian dominance in the top ten is only interrupted by Bart Lambriex from the Netherlands in 6th place and by Odile van Aanholt from Netherlands Antilles, 10th overall.
