ALL EVENT INFORMATION

Those in contention for medals were fighting for every inch across the four course areas to put themselves in a good position ahead of the penultimate day.

In another variable 6-14 knot breeze from the east, there was more tight racing in the 420 Class

420 GIRLS
American twin sisters Carmen and Emma Cowles were in fine form once again in the Girl's 420 and added a pair of seconds to hold on to their overnight lead.

They are now 12 points ahead of France's Violette Dorange and Camille Orion who claimed a race win and 16 points ahead of Italy's Arianna Passamonti and Giulia Fava who took the day's other victory.

Racing resumes on Thursday at 11:00 local time. A full day of racing will be held for all classes ahead of a single race on Friday that will close the event.

420 Girls - Provisional Results after 6 Races
1. Carmen Cowles/Emma Cowles (USA) - 8 pts
2. Violette Dorange/Camille Orion (FRA) - 20 pts
3. Arianna Passamonti/Giulia Fava (ITA) - 24 pts
4. Linoy Korn/Yael Steigman (ISR) - 25 pts

420 BOYS
Otto Henry and Rome Featherstone (AUS) surrendered their Boy's 420 lead after a contrasting day to their previous two. They started the week well, recording a 4-2-2-1 scoreline but in Wednesday's racing, a discarded 15th and a 13th saw them slip.

Israel's Ido Bikik and Noam Homri pounced, winning the first race of the day and taking a third in the next. They now have a six point advantage over the Australians. America's Thomas Rice and Trevor Bornarth (USA) are tied on 22 points with Henry and Featherstone.
