Lobart moved into the lead with a consistant performance (1,8,1) in the challenging conditions.

Zsombor Berecz of Hungary picked up a win in the second race of the day to finish third overall behind Anders Pedersen of Norway.

Ed Wright (11,13,17) of Britain sits in fourth, one point off the podium.

Both Lobert and Pedersen have already qualified for the Final on Saturday – the top three from the Opening Series progress straight to the Final.

One more place in the Final will be decided in Saturday’s final Opening Series race, while two more will come from the Semi-Final, which will be a race off between the next seven boats in the Opening Series.

Both the Semi-Final and Final are first across the line formats, with all the points across the previous six days wiped out for the final two short races.

While Lobert and Pedersen do not have to sail the final Opening Series Race, the forecast for Saturday afternoon is not very promising.

If there is no Final in the afternoon, then the results from the Opening Series stands.

Henry Wetherell of Great Britain still leads the U23 European Championship, though his lead has narrowed to eight points after a late charge from the 2015 champion, Arkadiy Kistanoc, from Russia. Oskari Muhonen of Finland is now in third.
