Day 4 of the Lightning Worlds saw a new crew in pole position with Jim Crane, Bill Crane and Jim Allen (USA) sail consistently to take a 4, 11, 2 and the series lead.
Yesterday produced a good seabreeze which filled in for two of the three races, even enough for a bit of hiking while upwind. The Race Committee set an Olympic triange course, which was a novelty for the fleet.

The top 5 boats remain extremely close, and with one race scheduled today anything could happen.

The results so far are clearly showing that consistency pays with the current leaders at the top, despite not winning a race.
