Finn Europeans day 4 - Cornish fire quenched

 
Two wins for Britain's Ben Cornish, but the second was null-and-void after race 8 was later abandoned after protest - Video added here.Ben Cornish GBR -

Championship leader Nicholas Heiner of Holland keeps a two point advantage ahead of Ed Wright of Britain after race 7. Josh Junior of New Zealand is third and Joanthan Lobert of France fourth.

After some delay for the new wind to settle, Ben Cornish won the first race of the day ahead of Olujic Josip of Croatia with Kiwi Andy Maloney in third and countryman Josh Junior fourth.

Ed Wright took fifth to close-up on Heiner who was 12th.

Again delays ( five attempts) before race 8 got away under black flag again. Wind was increasing 18-20 knots and really nice surfing waves with some sun.

Cornish was enjoying the conditions and led all the way to the finish. Second was Jake Lilly of Australia. Next was the Italian Alessio Spandoni, then Heiner in fourth place.

However after various protests for redress because of the out of position top mark – about 0.6 miles – race 8 was abandoned.

Britain's Henry Wetherell (11,) is ninth overall, and overall leader in the U23 group, now 19 points clear of Switzerland's Nils Theuninck.

With Race 8 being abandoned, three races are now scheduled for Friday.
