RS:X World Championship
Buzios, Brazil

One day made all of the difference at the 2013 RS:X World Championship in Buzios, Brazil as new leaders emerged overthrowing the early front runners.
With three races across the men's and women's fleet and gusts of up to 18 knots on the race course the world's best came to the forefront of London 2012 Olympic Champion Dorian Van Rijsselberge (NED) took the lead in the Men's fleet and three time World Champion Lee Korzits (ISR) took firm control in the Women's.

Korzits was in devastating form on the third day of the competition as the breeze kicked in to suit her style and with three race wins she has now opened up a 13 point gap over Great Britain's Bryony Shaw. The Briton had come into the day as the overnight leader but a far from convincing performance from her saw her lose top spot.

ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami victor Maayan Davidovich (ISR) makes it two Israeli sailors in the top three.

The top two in the Men's RS:X fleet shows the regular battle between London 2012 gold and silver medallists van Rijsselberge and Nick Dempsey (GBR). The Dutchman has opened up a six point lead over the Brit after the fleet split into gold and silver for the third day of racing.

A close fight for third is ongoing with one point separating Piotr Myszka (POL), Byron Kokkalanis (GRE) and Nimrod Mashich (ISR).
