Nacra 17 Worlds - Italian turn-over

As the scores had suggested at the end of qualifying, the points were too close for anyone to relax at the Nacra 17 Worlds in La Grande Motte.

To prove the point, Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti (15,1,1) of Italy rocketed out of the pack to grab the overall lead.

And Spain's Fernando Echavarri and Tara Pacheco (5,2,3) came from even further back (12th) to take second just two points off the leaders.

Only Iker Martinez and Olga Maslivets (14,5,9) of Spain hung on to their podium place.

Overnight leaders, Denmark's Christiansen and Lubeck (16,13,13) had their worse day so far and finished in fourth, with Britain's Ben Saxton and Katie Dabson (4, UFD,12) dropping to fifth.

Gemma Jones and Jason Saunders (2,8,24) of New Zealand looked to be doing well until the third race when they blew it with a 24 and are now sixth overall.

Another Italian pair, Vittorio Bissaro and Maelle Frascari (1,7,15) won the opening gold fleet race and are eighth overall, tied on points with Australia's Jason Waterhouse and Lisa Darmanin.
