ISAF Sailing World Championships 2007
Cascais, Portugal

It is day four of racing at the ISAF Sailing World Championships and another bright and sunny day in Cascais, Portugal. The busiest day of the championship yet is on the cards as the RS:X fleets and 49ers join the Lasers, Finns and Yngling out on Cascais bay.

All is calm and still in the marina at the moment, but the wind is predicted to increase steadily throughout the day. The forecast is for the northerly wind to grow to around 8 knots by the first races at 13:00 and then increase throughout the day, peaking around 18-20 knots on the outer course by the late afternoon.

It should be an interesting day in the Laser and Laser Radial, with the top sailors after today's two scheduled races moving into the gold fleets. Several big names likes Maciej GRABOWSKI (POL) and Brad FUNK (USA) are hovering dangerously close to the cut-off point. After two days racing close to shore, the Radials move up to the breezier race area 5 - an interesting new challenge for fleet leader Lijia XU (CHN).
