Australia's Colin HARRISON, Russel BOADEN and Graeme MARTIN remain in second place overall, but it could have been even better if they had not crossed the starting line of race nine early and been scored OCS. That ended off a very up and down day for the Australians, who had earlier won race seven and then finished 10th in race eight. They are just three points behind the French trio in the overall standings on 24 points.
Jens KROKER, Robert PREM and Siegmund MAINKA of Germany are just two points behind the Australians in third place overall after 5, 2, 9 scores today. The Greek team of Vasilis CHRISTOFOROU, Theodoris ALEXAS and Nikolaos PATERAKIS is just one point further back, with Norway's Jostein STORDAHL, Per Eugen KRISTIANSEN and Aleksxander WANG-HANSEN a single point behind them.
With just seven points covering these top five crews, tomorrow's final two races are perfectly poised to provide a thrilling finale to the 2008 Paralympic Sailing Competition.
