Much to the relief of everyone around the venue the storms and rain squalls of yesterday should not be repeated. A steady southerly wind is forecast throughout the day, with seven knots predicted for the scheduled start at 1100 local time (0900 UTC). By the afternoon this should have built to ten knots with gusts up to 22.

Tomorrow should also be a good racing day with strong north westerly winds for the last races of the final series, before the ten Medal Races to decide the ISAF World Sailing Games titles this Saturday 20 May.

National Standings

In the King's Trophy standings for the best performing nation, the Ukraine have made an impressive start. Maxim OBEREMKO (UKR) and Olga MASLIVETS (UKR) lead in the two RS:X fleets, whilst Rodion LUKA and Georgiy LEONCHUK (UKR) are looking good in the 49er giving them 27 points. If Ruslana TARAN and Olena PAKHOLCHYK (UKR) can improve from eleventh in the Women's 470, the Ukrainians have a great shot a causing a major upset.
