In race three Brett HOLLY (AUS) took in the left hand side of the course to find a nice shift to round the top mark in first place just ahead of Russell WOOD (NZL), who came from the right, and BLASSE. BLASSE went high on the first reach and took the lead, which he never let go. WOOD held onto second place until the final beat when fourth placed Nick CRAIG (GBR) pulled through both him and Alistair DEAVES (NZL) in the strengthening breeze.
For race four the breeze had increased to 20 knots, providing for some spectacular sailing and fast reaches. Jorgen LINDHARDTSEN (DEN) was the early leader followed by Peter HORNE (AUS) and BLASSE. Horne led for two rounds before being overhauled by BLASSE to take his second win of the day. Andre BLASSE (AUS) also overtook HORNE to finish second with HORNE holding onto third.
After four races and one drop, BLASSE has a narrow lead over CRAIG, with the rest of the fleet some way behind. The conditions for day three look the same as day two with a strengthening sea breeze and high temperatures. There are three more races (two Thursday and one Friday) to decide the Championship.
Racing at the OK Dinghy World Championship begins on Lake Macquarie this Monday 13 February.
