In the Laser Radial, Krystal Weir from Australia is drawing in the World Cup. After eight races, she is in first place with 14 points and the nearest competitor Tina Mihelic (CRO) is already ten points behind.
In the Laser Class, Rutger van Schaardenburg stayed in the lead, despite an early start in the tenth race. With his qualification for the medal race on Saturday, he secured a place in the Dutch Olympic sailing team. The Frenchman Jean-Baptiste Bernaz pulled into second place. "This is going to be close," said Van Schaardenburg.
In the Finn Class, Caleb Paine (USA) was satisfied with his first place after eight races. He took the lead from the Dutch Pieter-Jan Postma. Postma also started strongly on the second day, but fell to fifth place due to disqualifications. "That's sailing for you," said Paine, looking back at the developments.
The team of the New Zealander Paul Snow-Hansen is leading the 470 Class, just a little ahead of the Ger Owens (IRL).
In the Paralympic Class 2.4mR, the competition between Thierry Schmitter (NED) and Megan Pascoe (GBR) is very exciting. They will be starting the final final race on Saturday with an equal number of points. In the Paralympic Sonar Class, the French team skippered by Bruno Jourdren is in the lead.
