Giles Scott continued his come-back in the Finn class event, winning all three races to take a five point lead over Jake Lilley (2,3,2) of Australia. Nicholas Heiner (5,4,3) is in third place with Ben Cornish (3,2,5) fourth.

It was a good day with the wind around 15 kts with gusts of 20 kts on some courses and some more rain to really make the Brits feel at home.
