Tasmania's David Moore and Matthew Wilson in Stealth were brilliant today, taking first place in both heats.
These results should have helped with the disappointment of being disqualified in Heat 4 and have confirmed Stealth's position as favourite for the World Championship.
Another Australian hopeful for the World Championship, Glenn and Lloyd Collings (VIC) in No Chance took second place. Brits Steve and Juliet Long in Déjà Vu took third place in Heat 5 and fourth in Heat 6, rounding out a strong performance for the day.
The wind shifted north easterly for the next heat, and dropped off slightly, however the conditions were still challenging. Stealth took first place ahead of British favourites Av-It (Bithell and Scott). Av-It improved on a fourteenth place in Heat 5.
Crianza (GBR), sailed by Jonathon McGovern and Nicola Brook, placed third. Slightly cooler temperatures will greet sailors tomorrow as they continue the World Championships.
