Delta Lloyd Regatta 2011
Medemblik, Netherlands

It was a frustrating third day for the sailors at the Delta Lloyd Regatta after just four races were completed in three fleets and six races in the Women's Match Racing took place before postponement at 16:10.
The Men's RS:X were the only fleet to successfully complete a full compliment of races. And the day belonged to Taehoon Lee (KOR) who won Race 5 before finishing second in Race 6 to end the day on 12 points in third.

The top of the Men's leaderboard is tight with just three points separating Dorian Van Rijsselberge (NED) in first, on nine points, and Lee in third.

Van Rijsselberge, who is sailing in his home regatta, has been the pick of the sailors in the RS:X fleet this week. After winning gold at US SAILING's Rolex Miami OCR and Trofeo S.A.R. Princess Sofia MAPFRE the Dutchman is well on track to maintain his 100% record so far having only competed in two out of four ISAF Sailing World Cup regattas before Medemblik.

His nine points gives him a two point advantage over Jon-Paul Tobin (NZL) who finished 2-3 today.

The rest of the fleet have a tough task of catching Van Rijsselberge, Tobin and Lee as Canada's Zachary Plavsic, in fourth place, finds himself trailing the frontrunners by 15 points.

In the Laser, ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year, Tom Slingsby has jumped to the top of the leader board. He won the only race today in the Laser fleet and has six points after discarding his tenth place finish in the third race.

Bruno Fontes (BRA) came second today and has ten points, he leapfrogs early Laser leader Milan Vujasinovic (CRO). The Croatian finished the first day with double bullets in the breeze but was unable to find some similar form on an equally breezy third day. His seventh place finish has seen him slip to third overall on 13 points.

Ireland's Annalise Murphy won the only Laser Radial race today. She now leads the overall leader board on 14 points, ahead of Tina Mihelic (CRO), who came fifth today, on 15 points. Marit Bouwmeester (NED) came 39th and 13th on day two. But the Dutch girl put her disastrous second day behind her finishing second in Race 5 today.

Overnight leader Gintare Scheidt (LTU) finished 13th today and has dropped to fourth overall.

In The Women's Match Racing, just six races took place in Group B before abandonment. Renee Groeneveld (NED) qualified for the Gold Group after defeating Julie Bossard (FRA). Groeneveld has won seven out of eight races and has one more to go.

With one race apiece remaining, Ekaterina Skudina (RUS), Silja Lehtinen (FIN), Anna Kjelberg (SWE) and Stephanie Hazard (NZL) are in contention for the final two qualification places. With six race wins China's Ru Wang has completed her nine races, if results go her way she will qualify for the Gold Group.

Women's Match Racing will commence at 09:00 local time with the rest of the classes starting at 10:00 local time.
