The southerly Ora breeze has provided near-perfect conditions over the six race courses out of Trentino and Veneto, with the third day of racing today. ZANDONA and TRANI have found their top form and lead by 11 points, whilst in the Women's 470 their team mates Giulia CONTI and Giovanna MICOL (ITA) lie four points behind the impressive Paoli Vesna DEKLEVA and Klara MAUCEC (SLO). Italy also leads in the small 49er and Tornado fleets, courtesy of, respectively, Giuseppe ANGILELLA and Pietro ZUCCHETTI (ITA) and Vincenzo SORRENTINO and Giorgio COLOMBO (ITA).
In the Laser, Athens Olympic bronze medallist Vasilij ZBOGAR (SLO) has fallen back to second place after Marc DE HAAS (NED) posted scores of 3,2,1 today, whilst world #1 Evi VAN ACKER (BEL) is utterly dominating the Laser Radial fleet, with bullets in all eight races so far. Another world #1, Hamish PEPPER (NZL) leads the Star fleet with crew Brad NICHOL (USA). Gasper VINCEC (SLO) adds to the impressive Slovenian performance by holding the top spot in the Finn fleet.
