After wining five matches in a row for a 10-1 record, world #3 ZUIDERBAAN leads the scoring table. Following her are two Danish skippers. World #2 Lotte MELDGAARD PEDERSEN (DEN) and last year's runner up Nina BRAESTRUP (DEN) are tied on 8-3 records but BRAESTRUP holds the advantage, having beaten her compatriot in an exciting match.
The high level of the event was demonstrated by the fact that the leader of the ISAF World Match Race Rankings Claire LEROY (FRA) only managed to finish in fourth place in the round robin. In her first visit to the International Women Match Racing Criterium, Katie SPITHILL (AUS) has impressed the everyone with her ability and currently lies fifth overall and is the only crew who has beaten the leader ZUIDERBAAN.
