Weymouth and Portland, Great Britain

Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page (AUS) and Great Britain's Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell are neck and neck in the Men's 470 with just one point separating them at the top of the leader board.
Twenty nine points separates Patience and Bithell in second and Gabrio Zandona and Pietro Zucchetti (ITA) and Lucas Calabrese and Juan de la Fuente (ARG) tied in third on 46 points.

The Australians and Brits have blitzed the field and share five race wins between them as well as several top five results.

"It's a change of scene and change of course tomorrow," said Belcher. "We'll come out fighting. We're confident - it's close."

Two fleet races remain ahead of the Medal Race on 9 August and the Australians and Brits will want to put some daylight inbetween each other at the top of the tree.

Top Five
1. Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page (AUS) - 16pts
2. Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell (GBR) - 17pts
3. Gabrio Zandona and Pietro Zucchetti (ITA) - 46pts
4. Lucas Calabrese and Juan de la Fuente (ARG) - 46pts
5. Paul Snow-Hansen and Jason Saunders (NZL) - 47pts
