470 Europeans - Just the one race in Monaco

Only one race completed for each of the 470 men's gold and women's racing on day 3 at the European Championships in Monaco.

The 470 Men fleet are split into gold and silver for the six race final series, whilst the women continue their single series – with 11 races for all.

The top 10 teams in men and women will advance to the double-points Medal Race on Saturday 13 May.

A win for Israel’s Noya Bar-Am and Nina Amir puts them into the lead, with Elena Berta and Sveva Carraro (ITA) stepping up to 2nd, and overnight leaders Mafalda Pires De Lima and Mariana Lobato down to third.

Britain's Amy Seabright and Anna Carpenter had a ninth to recover to fourth overall.

Jess Lavery and Flora Stewart, had a 23 and are 13th overall.

Wednesday was the first opportunity for the two top men's teams to face each other, and history shows that the Swedes have never beaten the Australians at an event. – so it will be fascinating to see how their performance unfolds as the pressure mounts.

Turkey’s Cinar brothers took the early running in the gold fleet race, leading the Swedes and Portugal’s Costa brothers up the first leg.

They held off the threats from behind, taking their second win of the week. Carl-Fredrik Fock and Marcus Dackhammar SWE were second and Mathew Belcher and Will Ryan AUS sixth.

Belcher/Ryan have an 11 point deficit to make up to the leaders, who they beat at their last meeting at Sailing World Cup Hyeres last month.
