The SIM 33 Singapore Open Asian Windsurfing Championships is running like clockwork with target times met and championship racing completed by mid afternoon giving all time to relax and enjoy the incredible downtown Singapore atmosphere.
There were three more races for all fleets that saw a dramatic change on the Techno 293 Youth Boys podium. Chan Tsz Kit maintains his overall lead, extended to 16 points clear of Hong Kong team mate Cheng Ho Yin who took the first bullet of the day and steps up to second place. Ikeda Kensei from Japan is a mere two points behind stepping up to third place whilst Wong Chun Yan has been kicked off the podium and lies in fourth overall.
Youth Girl Duangkamon Phongern from Thailand had a perfect day, crossing the finish line first every time, now five points clear of Choi Wing Chi from Hong Kong in second. In third and fourth, two Japanese girls Niijima Rina and Matsuura Kazami still have equal points so all to play for to decide the final podium position.
In the Open Fleet, Russian competitor Sandakov Dmitry is at the top but only one point ahead of Ikeda Takumi from Japan. Yesterday's leader Ikeda Kazushi has slipped down to third but again only one point behind. It is likely that all three will be on the podium but the last day is crucial in deciding in which order.
