KHNG is the new leader with scores of 1,8,11 for the three races sailed today in moderate 12-14 knot winds. In general it was a good day for the girls with Stephanie ZIMMERMANN (PER) advancing to 5th with 5,2,10, Haruka KOMIYA (JPN) in 7th and Rufina TAN (MAS) just waiting to discard her 65th after race 12.

Singapore following their victory in the Team Racing event remain in buoyant mood with four sailors in a top 20, which still includes sailors from 12 nations.

But four races remain to be sailed and all is still to play for. Julian AUTENRIETH (GER) lies second overall, nine points behind KHNG after going 14,3,12 for the day, whilst Ecuador's Edgar DIMINICH lies third, a further seven points back.
