Finn Gold Cup
Athens

Ben Ainslie (GBR) continues to lead the Finn Gold Cup with a one, two score line today matched only by ISAF World ranked number one Mateusz Kusznierewicz (POL) who scored a two and a one.
These two had a close battle in both races, Kusznierewicz coming right back at Ainslie on the finish line of the first race to the great excitement of one Polish press correspondent, who nearly fell at of the press boat!

In the second race it went Kusznierewicz's way and he took the win from Ainslie. Local hero Emilios Papathanasiou (GRE) also fared very well today with a three and a ten, he has pulled back up to third overall just one point behind Kusznierewicz. Ainslie increased his lead by one point to seventeen points, and is looking more and more likely to take the title.
