Sofía Iberostar - Day 3 Results

Day 3 of Mallorca's 49th Trofeo Princesa Sofía Iberostar regatta for the Olympic classes and stronger wind conditions on the menu for today.

In the women's RS:X Britain's Emma Wilson started her day with a win in race 5 this morning, ahead of Lilian de Geus of the Netherlands.

Strong winds on some courses . . . but eventually all racing was completed on schedule . . . a great effort by the race teams.

Aussie Oliver Tweddell won the first Finn race today as the stonger wind changes the order. Overnight leader Nils Theuninck of Switzerland was 43rd ! Giles Scott takes 20 point lead.

In the Laser and Radial those with just one poor result are able to discard and the heavy hitters move into the top positions.

Britain's Alison Young obviously back in her element, winning Radial race 6.

Nick Thompson fighting his way back is up to ninth overall in the Laser as Aussie and Kiwi teams hit the front.

Dylan Fletcher and Stuart Bithell finished the day on a high winning the final 49er race to regain the lead.

Note that the competitors are now in sailing in gold and silver fleets to decide the top 10 for the Medal races on Saturday.
