Race two start saw the RS:X sailors favouring the pin end while the Mistral fleet favoured the Committee Boat. RS:X Korean KIM Kyung Yong starting on port mistook the length of the anchor line of the Committee Boat and got tangled thereby loosing valuable time which is essential in a one design race. FRIDMAN showed all the sailors and spectators why he is the current Olympic gold medallist in windsurfing by commanding the fleet from start to finish with local sailor HO again taking second place. In the women's fleet CHAN Wai Man again showed dominance with second place a close fought battle between Hong Kong's CHAN Wai Kei and Japan's KOSUGE, with the Hong Kong sailor just taking the spot.
As per the Sailing Instructions, all the sailors set off to the beach for a rest before the start of race three. With the wind starting to drop race three was light and shifty. The RS:X sailors who managed to get planing early at the start gained a large advantage while the remainder of the fleet tried to sail high but slower. With the wind continuing to drop the Race Committee wisely shortened the race. Hong Kong sailors obviously relishing in the lighter conditions took first to third places with CHENG Kwok Fai taking the gun followed by MA Kwok Po and CHAN King Yin. FRIDMAN, who is used to sailing in heavier conditions, took fourth place to stay in the lead overall. With wind conditions due to strengthen the Israeli sailor will be hoping that it fills in earlier than the expected Saturday.
