8 Races are completed at 2013 RS:X Asian Championships in Stanley Main Beach Hong Kong. With only one day left the tension rises.
In RS:X men Cheng Chun Leung Michael keeps the position of the leader since the first day, but after scoring 2 bullets in the last races Leung Ho Tsun Andy is right behind him with equal points. Wonwoo Cho is in 3rd position loosing 8 points to the second place, but he will have to defend the position in the last races as Gabriel Angelo GarFai Brettell is pressing hard with only 2 points behind him.
In RS:X women the top 2 places have not changed and Chan Hei Man Hayley Victoria keeps 6 points advantage that she gained after second day over Lo Sin Lam Sonia. There will be a battle for the podium place between two Japanese as after having a stunning day with 2 races won Megumi Komine jumped into 3rd place leaving Yuki Sunaga in the 4th with a loss of 3 points.
The situation is even more tight in the top of youth men and youth women though the top 3 in both divisions seams to be secure to keep the podium with respectively 12 and 14 points advantage over rivals in the 4th. With only 2 races to go, the Honkongese Kikabhoy Rafeek in the first place, and Ng Ho Yin in the second, are having equal points. Phattharandanai Jinain is only 4 points behind them and have already proved that he can win races.
In the top of youth women are also two sailors from Hong Kong and also with equal points. Ngain Wai Yan and Ma Kwan Ching are only 3 points ahead from their rival from Korea Sabin Chun and we do not know yet how the medals will be dived.
Tomorrow last 2 races are scheduled with Prise Giving Ceremony set for Monday.
