Day Three of this ISAF Grade 2 and 3 event saw perfect conditions, with all eleven disciplines able to race. Local sailors currently dominate with podium positions in four classes.
Fernando Echavarri and Anton Paz continue to lead the Tornado fleet with a second place in yesterday's racing. They now carry a two point lead over Darren Bundock and Glen Ashby (AUS). Third place is currently held by the British duo of Leigh McMillan and Mark Bulkeley.

Frddie Loof and Anders Ekstrom (SWE) lead the Star Class by a point from Roberto Bermudez and Marcos Iglesias (ESP), whilst in the Women's keelboat, the Yngling, Russians, Ekatarina Lartseva, Tatiana Skoudina, and Tatiana Kovalen, are on equal points with the British Crew led by Shirley Robertson in first position.

We now finally have some results in the Europe class, after three races, Shen Xiaoying (CHN) leads, followed by Lenka Smidova (CZE).

In the 49er, the event has been turned around after the last three races and is now jointly led by the British pair of Paul Brotherton and Mark Asquith, who recently launched the next step of their campaign with the acquisition of two new boats, and Chris Draper and Simon Hiscocks (GBR), with the British entry in Athens 2004 very much up for grabs, the battle between this pair is likely to intensify. Third spot is occupied by the Norweigan duo of Christoffer SUNDBY and Frode BOVIN, only 3 points behind the leading two going into the final days racing today.

The men and women's 470 continues to be dominated by the Ukranians and Israelis respectively, with Nike Kornicki and Vered Bouskila leading the womens fleet and Eugeny Braslavets and Igor Matvienko, 470 veterans in the Men's.

Full event results are available on the event website at the address below. Today is the final day of racing and will see the relevant class champions crowned.
