Kuznetsov's crew, which includes tactician Evgeny Neugodnikov, was undoubtedly THE team to beat today.

Their daily performance resulted in a 1-4-2 scoreline with the breeze swinging between 240 and 260 degrees with about 10 knots of breeze.

This ultimately gave the overall lead, but also immediately set a very precious margin between themselves and the pursuers.

Second overall with a total of 14 points is Fritz Homann's Wilma maintaining all top-five finishes with Nico Celon on tactics.

Current Melges 32 World League leader Matteo Balestrero aboard Giogi with Daniele Cassinari as tactician is in third, confirming him as one of the fastest boats in the fleet.

Rounding out the top five, in fourth and fifth respectively are Edoardo Pavesio's FRA MARTINA, and Edoardo Lupi/Massimo Pessina on Torpyone.
