Paul Goodison of the Great Britain , proved yet again how and why he has attained 6th place on the ISAF ranking by the age of 23, winning both races of the day.
He now goes into the final day of competition with an unbroken record as first across the line in eight races. Though there is just one race to go, Paul has such a commanding lead that he can already confidently be declared regatta winner in the Laser Class. During his time in Qatar, Paul Goodison has been passing on his knowledge and expertise to the young sailors of the DSA - and in some cases to other competitors.
By 6pm the international jury still had two protests to hear. Provisional results showed Peter Whip of the UK maintaining his position as second overall, with Khalil Omer of Egypt in 3rd place.
Out at the head of the 470 field, overnight leaders Christian Ringer and Arthur Thuringer finished the first race of the day in fifth position, behind Russians Marina Foufaeva and Marina Baranova, Philip Lempertz and Stephan Hettich, Inga and Kristin Runge , Stephan Shweiger and Johannes Schmederer. But they soon recovered, taking the second race ahead of the Russian girls and the German sisters.
The final two races of the regatta are scheduled to take place today (Friday), with the Lasers starting at 10 am and the 470s at 12 noon.
