Australia's Andrew McDougall extended his overall lead to nine points after a further three races on day two of the PUMA Moth World Championship in Dubai.
Day two of PUMA International Moth Worlds got to a late start as a foggy haze and light winds lead to a 30 minute postponement onshore. Today was really a pressure game - those who stayed in the pressure were able to get up on their foils and make gains.
The fleet had three races today, bringing the total for the event up to four. Races two and three saw light winds and tough foiling conditions. The breeze filled in a bit for race four, allowing the fleet to really get up and moving. The leaderboard remains relativity unchanged, with Andrew "Amac" McDougall still in the number one spot. After day two, the top five are:
