Optimist Class World Championships
Corpus Christi, Texas

Clear skies and breeze refresh the competition as the competitors left the dock for three races yesterday.
Two were originally scheduled, but due to light winds yesterday, to keep on target with the series the PRO decided to run three races.

The first race, with winds around 11 knots, saw the Netherland's sailors leading all three flights at the weather mark. Croatia and Spain were having good races as well. The second and third races were sailed in 12-16 knots of breeze and large wave sets, allowing the competitors to show off their awesome surfing abilities!

The skies got a little dark and menacing, but were offset by the beauty created by the green water.

Steven le Fevre (NED) won all three of his races and has now knocked Filip Matika (CRO) off the top spot. However, with only a one point margin between le Fevre (17 points) and Matika (18 points) there is no margin of error as they move into day four today.

Excellent sailing from Eduardo Zalvide (ESP) who now lies in third place with 27 points, and from Xu Lijia (CHN) who is now the top girl, in 6th, with Hannah Mills (GBR) in 7th.
