Nacra 17 Europeans - Riders of the Storm

 
Italy’s Ruggero Tita and Catarina Banti power into lead

Ruggero Tita and Catarina Banti added two race wins to take the lead from Gemma Jones, Jason Saunders (2,8) of New Zealand.

The Nacra 17s enjoyed some frantic racing after a massive thunderstorm system erupting over the mainland helped create a brisk, 15 knot Northeasterly that allowed them to reach speeds well over 20 knots at times.

Spain's Fernando Echavarri and Tara Pacheco (7,4) hold onto third place while Britain's Ben Saxton and Nikki Boniface (19,2) drop to fourth.

John Gimson and Anna Burnet (5,6) GBR move into fifth place, although they are nine points off Saxton and Boniface.

Nathan and Haylee Outteridge (15,5) are in sixth place, just one point behind Gimson and Burnet.
