After three more exciting races Brodtkorb (2,2,1) and Cumbley (1,1,2) shared the wins Thursday in their group.

The defending champion, Denmark’s Bo Petersen (3,8,2), is nine points behind the leading pair, with Kiwi Luke Gower (2,6,1) in fourth tied on points with Thomas Hanson-Mild (4,3).

The other race wins went to Jan Kurfeld (1,67,9) from Germany, Jens Lauge (6,1,5) from Denmark and New Zealand’s Luke Gower.

Defending champion, Bo Petersen, is feeling a lot of local pressure to retain his title here, and a third in the opening race and a second in the last race has moved him up to third overall, after several of the other contenders struggled and picked up high scores.

Jan Kurfeld, from Germany, won the opening race in his group before being pulled out of the second race while in the lead after picking up a second yellow flag for a Rule 42 infringement.

The second race of the second group turned into a Danish benefit with Jens Lauge taking the win from long time leader Henrik Kofoed Larsen (15,2,3).

The third best performer of the day was Gower, who sneaked a second place off Wilcox in the first race and then stormed the final race to win by several minutes, gaining hugely on the second upwind to hold a comfortable lead.

Racing continues on Friday with three races scheduled as part of the 10 race series, which concludes on Saturday.

After Friday’s races, the fleets will be split into gold and silver groups for the final two races on Saturday.
