In the women's fleet, Lee Korzits (ISR1111) and Sofia Klepacka (POL8) are locked together on 8 points with Lee just shading it to stand on the top step of the podium tonight.
15 points back is Maja Dziarnowska (POL7) who is probably having her best regatta in the senior fleet so far leading Rolex World Sailor of the Year and current RS:X World Champion, Blanca Manchon (ESP1) by 8 points.
The bad news is that Marina Alabau (ESP5) did not race today due to an upset tummy Hopefully she'll be back on Thursday but her regatta is effectively over.
The other casualty is Joao Rodrigues (POR75) who is suffering from the same bug and is flying home to Madeira to recover. Perth 2011, the ISAF World Sailing Championships, is just a few months away so he doesn't want to take any chances on missing out on Olympic qualification.
Meanwhile Piotr Myszka (POL82) and Byron Kokkalanis (GRE8) have been swapping places all day in the RS:X Men's Fleet. They both have 7 points and a 5 point cushion on a battle royal between Shahar Zubari (ISR11) and Nimrod Mashiah (ISR21) who are fighting for national selection and a possible slot in
the windsurfing event in London 2012.
All was going well for Nimrod up to the start of the last race of the day - race 6 - when the fleet split equally at either end of the start line. Nimrod accelerated away on port at the gun and as the two halves of the fleet came together was involved in a spectacular crash with Marcantonio Baglione (ITA2)
They both dialled down to avoid the collision at the same time and the result was a large chunk out of Nimrod's starboard bow... The jury will decide the outcome of the redress hearing AND may influence the final outcome of the battle...
See you on Thursday
