Enterprise World Championship 2005
Negombo, Sri Lanka

Richard ESTAUGH and Pete ROWLEY (GBR) had a great day three at the 2005 Enterprise World Championship to pull out an eight point lead in the overall standings. A bullet and a third for the Brits puts clear water between them and the chasing pack.

Today's sailing was once again delayed by over an hour before the wind picked up. The first race started with no hitches with a wind at about six knots climbing to about ten by the end of the first race.

There was a general recall in the second race and the Race Officer, clearly wiser, immediately put up the black flag for the second start! The race was hotly contested once again.

Behind ESTAUGH and ROWLEY, the Pakistani team of Mamoon SADIQ and Abdul HAMEED remain the closest challengers. They recovered from a disappointing eleventh in the day's first race, two post a second in race six to stay within touch of the leaders.

Two top ten finishes saw the Indian team of Naresh YADAV and C MURGAN climb up into third place overall.
