Alexander Hagen/Olivier Vitzthum (GER) were third, and 2002 World Champions Iain Percy and Steve Mitchell (GBR) finished just behind. This result sees them move up into sixteenth place overall but counting a DNF from the first race, a medal for the pair looks unlikely.
Adding a sixth place to his impressive score-line, American sailor and triple Olympic medallist Mark Reynolds, sailing with Austin Sperry, have scored nothing worse than a ninth place throughout the championships and look set to take home a medal. Fredrik Loof/Andres Ekstrom (SWE) are just one point behind Reynolds and will be fighting hard on the remaining day to snatch the gold medal from him.
