Tabares won the first race, took second behind Patience in race 7, but then could only manage an eighth in the final race, but he keeps a comfortable 20 point lead.

Eric Brezellec of France had the best day of all, scoring a 3-3-1 to move up to third for the championship. Jose Maria Van Der Ploeg (ESP) scored 10-10-2 to move up to fourth.

“It would have been very easy to have a shocker today.” commented 470 Olympic Silver Medallist, Luke Patience.

“Chris (Grube) did a great job reading the shifts, especially in the penultimate race, but that was a far from an easy race course today."

"When the wind is coming off the land like that, it can shift both ways. Personally, I tried to concentrate more on driving the boat and that has also paid off.”
