Jack Feisenthal and Shaun Connor (AUS) continue to lead after eight races.

Followed by Daniel and Nathan van Kerckhof, then in 3rd Emmanuel Le Chapelier and Theo Constance.

Conditions were tough for both race committee and crews, winds shifting around from the south-west to the south-east and huge variations in direction and strength.

Yet the pointscore leaders Jack Felsenthal and Shaun Connor (AUS) still shone, scoring a first and second to hold onto the overall lead by seven points with seven races remaining.

Current Viper world champion Emmanuel ‘Manu’ Le Chapelier (FRA) and crew Theo Constance moved into third overall.

A-Cat sailor Lachie White was injured with trap handle on a capsize on his eye, seems to be ok but at least one month rest has was given to him.

On Thursday January 12 competitors will enjoy a rest day and return to complete the scheduled 15 race series from Friday until Sunday January 15.

On Sunday the 2017 Viper world champions will be announced and awarded a stunning Bausele timepiece each.
