As in the previous days, the right side of the course was favoured. The run allowed the regatta leaders to get ahead of the fleet, with the leadership changing constantly between PAPATHANASIOU, HOEGH-CHRISTENSEN, VINCEC and AINSLIE. The battle intensified on the last run with the four sailing neck to neck. AINSLIE was protecting the inside of the course while VINCEC placed on the right side. The Slovenian gained enough ground to take the lead a few metres from the finishing line.
VINCEC is continuing on his good form after winning the ISAF Grade 1 Kieler Woche. The victory places him in third position of the Championship only one point behind PAPATHANASIOU, who eventually took second in the race. Discarding yesterday's fourth place, AINSLIE conserves a good lead with three races to go until the end of the regatta. Behind him, six sailors are within eight points of each others giving any of them a good chance to step on the podium.
Ivan KLJAKOVIC GASPIC (CRO) is still leading the junior rankings in 15th position overall after collecting 21 points in yesterday's race. Zach RAILEY (USA) was the best junior performer yesterday with a 16th place. The American is placed 19th overall and second junior with Tapio NIRKKO (FIN) third junior in 28th position.
Two races are scheduled for today which could see AINSLIE regain the European title he lost to Mateusz KUSZNIEREWICZ (POL) last year with a day to spare.
