Tabares opened up a commanding lead for the regatta, but it was a game of snakes and ladders for the rest of the fleet.

Simon Moriceau (FRA) has climbed to second place after an 8-3-1, and Luke Patience put in two great races, but slipped up in the last race to remain in third place.

J/80 UK National Champion, Kevin Sproul, had a shocker dropping eight places after a 19-24-13.

2012 J/80 World Champion, Jose Maria Van Der Ploeg (ESP) had a good day, scoring a 5-2-5 to move up to fourth. Whilst last year's runner up, Eric Brezellec (FRA), was called OCS in Race 4, and slips down to fourteenth.
