Optimist Oceanian Championship
Apia

Just five points separate the leaders after 8 of the scheduled 12 races in Samoa.
Teiki Hacheche (TAH), twelfth at the Optimist World Champioship in July and firm favourite before the event, had two bullets in races 7 and 8 to bring him within a point of the new leader Gael Blanquart of New Caledonia. Early leader Corentin Guegan is a further two points adrift.

The Cook Islands continue to surprise and may secure girls bronze, which would be their first medal in the history of the event, through Sophie Merkens. Gold and silver look to be a repeat of last year with Vaimiti Rigal (TAH) leading Sally Whitmore (AUS).
