Fireball Nationals - Leaders feel the heat

 
After three hot and very light wind races in 5-6 kts the leader board has closed right up.

After three difficult, hot and mentally draining races Friday’s racing to decide the 2018 Fireball National Champions is now a four boat race.

Ian Dobson and Richard Wagstaff's (3,5,6) lead was cut to four points as their winning streak fizzed out in the heat.

Penny Clark and Russ Clark (2,3,3) are in in second, with Australia's Heather Macfarlane and Chris Payne (1,1,2) one point back in third

Anthony and James Willcocks (4,2,1) are another point back in in fourth.

With a discard now in play and another beckoning it is going to go to the wire.
