Despite the light winds around 10 kn yesterday, Tom Burton AUS defended his lead in the Lasers Standard, but Tonci Stipanovic CRO reduced the backlog on 5 points.

Evi Van Acker BEL is now the sole leader in the Lasers Radial six points ahead of Anne-Marie Rindom DEN on 2nd. Gintare Scheidt LTU remains on 3rd (and is ahead compared to her husband Robert Scheidt BRA on 5th in the Standards). Marit Bouwmester NED, day ranks 1 and 5, was shining for the first time at this event and progressed on position 8 overall. Alison Young GBR is at present on rank 10, the cut for the Medal Race, and today's two races will be crucial. Light winds have been forecast for today as well. The races can again be followed live on the Internet.

The light winds gave again adavantage to the specialists in the Swiss team, above all Linda Fahrni/Maja Siegenthaler SUI, moving up on rank 7 overall wit the day ranks 1 and 9 as second-best team in the 470 women. Light winds will reign again today and the chances to defend the Medal Race place are good with an advantage of 11 points on rank 11.
Also on a Medal Race course is Mateo Sanz-Lanz SUI in the RS:X male windsurfers. With the ranks 3/5/10, he was among the best yesterday, moving up on rank 10 overall. His advance on Przemyslav Miarczynski POL is 5 points, and in the light breeze today, he has good chances to remain within the top-10 qualifying for the Medal Race on Sunday.
No improvement by Yannick Brauchli/Romuald Hausser SUI in the 470 men. Admittedly, they finished the first race on rank 18, corresponding to their light wind performance, but second heat was again frustrating with rank 31.
The Nacra 17 completed only one race, but the 20th place, Matias Bühler/Nathalie Brugger SUI did not help in the overall rankings. As 15th with a 22 points deficit to rank 10, their objective to reach the top-10 is very ambitious.
All ranking lists and the daily report. Racing can again be followed as from 10 a.m. UTC live on the Internet.

The whole fleet tacked North yesterday along the Brazilian coast, and the first to move - 'Alvimedica' (Charlie Enright USA) - has now the overall lead. 'Dongfeng' (Charles Caudrelier FRA) on 2nd follows 9 miles behind, and another 2 miles back is 'Mapfre' (Iker Martinez ESP) on the 3rd place. No major changes will happen in the Southern trade-winds today, and only the passage of the Equator will probably stretch the closely packed fleet.

Light and very shifty winds made the day very challenging for the 4 teams on their foiling GC32 catamarans, and only 3 of the 6 planned races could be completed.

The breeze filled in with up to 5 bft on sunny Hyères Bay, ... dream conditions for the 3rd Act of the ISAF Olympic Classes Worldcup. The favorites progressed in all classes, mostly compensating for some weak results from day 1.
Sime Fantela/Igor Marenic CRO have taken the lead in the 470 men ahead of Zandona/Trani ITA still 2nd and new, as best of the day, ranks 1 and 4, Luke Patience/Eliott Willis GBR on 3rd. Gerz/Szymanski GER dropped on rank 4. Hannah Mills/Saskia Clarke GBR moved up on rank 1 thanks to a race win in the 470 women, at equal points with Anne Haeger/Briana Provancha USA and Jo Aleh/Polly Powrie NZL.
The NZL vs AUS duel in the 49ers has defintely tilted towards the Kiwis Peter Burling/Blair Tuke NZL with a brilliant 1/1/2 day. Jonas Warrer/Anders Thomsen DEN follow on rank 2, while the Olympic Champions Nathan Outteridge/Iain Jensen AUS descended on rank 3 ... the lack of skiff training becomes evident with this team active on all kind of boats. New on top of the 49erFX are Ida-Marie Baad/Marie Thusgaard DEN ahead of the best of the day Tamara Echegoyen/Berta Betanzos ESP new on 2nd.
Giles Scott GBR, undefeated for two years, has taken the command in the Finns, ahead of Ed Wright GBR and Pieter-Jan Postma NED.
Billy Besson/Marie Riou FRA, the dominators of the Nacra 17 have taken the lead yesterday, followed by Lin Cenholt/Peter Lübeck DEN 2nd and Jason Waterhouse/Lisa Darmanin AUS 3rd.
With Piotr Myszka POL ahead of Nimrod Mashiah ISR and Prszemyslav Myarczinski POL, the well-known RS:X male windsurfers did move on the top positions. In the RS:X women, it is the newcomer of the year Lilian de Geus NED who is clearly in front of Isobel Hamilton GBR. Woman of the day was Maja Dziarnowska POL, winner of all three heats, and moving up on rank 4 after her disastrous first day (ranks 29/28).

Sun and a fresh up to 20 kn breeze prevailed on the second day of the Hyères Olympic Classes Worldcup.
No wonder, that in these conditions, the top Laser Standard sailors took control, and the leading top quartet consists now of Tom Burton AUS first ahead of Nicholas Heiner NED 2nd, Tonci Stipanovic CRO 3rd and Robert Scheidt BRA 4th.
In the Radials, the first place is shared by Anne-Marie Rindom DEN and Evi Van Acker BEL, with Gintare Scheidt-Volungeviciute LTU following on rank 3. Not up to speed is Marit Bouwmester NED on rank 14 overall, and with a 10th place yesterday just making the top-10s for the first time.

The up to 20 kn breeze was not really the preferred turf for the Swiss yesterday. Only Matias Bühler/Nathalie Brugger SUI were more or less in contact with the best in the Nacra 17, and the ranks 5/9/10 helped to move up on rank 15 overall. To reach the Medal Race is hard but not impossible. The disappointing day ranks 39 and 27 killed all hopes for a top result for Yannick Brauchli/Romuald Hausser SUI now on rank 30, and also the 470 women team Linda Fahrni/Maja Siegenthaler SUI descended overall on 19th with the day ranks 34 and 21. Remains Mateo Sanz-Lanz SUI down on 19th with the RS:X male windsurfers, who lost his good overall position from the first day.

After a never-ending starboard tack on the South Atlantic for several days, 'Abu Dhabi' (Ian Walker GBR) and 'Alvimedica' (Charlie Enright USA) have been tempted to bring a tactical move in to interrupt the drag race with a tack direction North. However, they did come back rapidly, but with the benefit of taking the lead with increased gaps to the rest of the fleet. 'Abu Dhabi' is now 7 miles ahead of 'Alvimedica' and 13 miles in front of the all-female 'SCA' team of Samantha Davies GBR on 3rd.

The Annual Championship of the flying GC32-catamarans begins in May on Lake Traun. Over this weekend, the class has organised a test event in Marseille for the prominent newcomers 'Alinghi' and 'Spindrift', and a the same time offering race management an opportunity to deal with these superfast multihulls.
Six races were completed yesterday and Flavio Marazzi SUI, experienced since the launching of this class two years ago, clearly leads in the interim's rankings ahead of 'Spindrift' with Yann Guichard FRA 2nd, 'GDF Suez' with Sébastien Rogues FRA and 'Alinghi' with Ernesto Bertarelli SUI at equal points 3rd.

After the short races during the first two days and a lay day, the start to the 300 miles' 'Maitre Coq' race was given yesterday. The 43 solo-skippers will probably be underway in light and unconstant winds keeping them to be alert during over two-days. Yoann Richomme FRA on 'Macif' was on the first position this morning, but the fleet is closely together after roughly 70 miles sailed.

Light and unconstant winds prevailed on the first day of the Hyères Worldcup, but nevertheless, all classes sailed the full program. The light-wind specialists had their day while some of the favorites found themselves on unusual ranks.
Convincing as in the previous year, Anne Haeger/Briana Provancha USA took the overall lead in the 470 women posting the scores of 4 and 3. Oliveira/Barbachan BRA and Mills/Clark GBR are the first persuers. Same situation in the 470 men, where Ferdinand Gerz/Oliver Szymanski GER - top in the light winds in Marseille two weeks ago already - are on position 1 also with the race ranks 4 and 3. Fantela/Marenic CRO and Zandona ITA/Trani ITA follow on 2 and 3.
The favorites have already taken control in the 49ers with Outteridge/Jensen AUS and Burling/Tuke NZL sharing the lead ahead of Delle-Karth/Resch AUT on 3rd. Surprising the situation in the 49ersFX with the appearance of Lili Sebesi/Julie Bossard FRA on rank 1 together with the favorites Ida-Marie Baad/Marie Thusgaard DEN. Grael/Kunze BRA and Hansen/Salskov DEN follow at equal points on 3rd.
First leader in the Finns is Andrew Murdoch NZL, ahead of Michele Paoletti ITA and Ondrej Teply CZE tied on rank 2. The high-rider Giles Scott GBR follows on the 7th place with the ranks 25 and 1.
Jason Waterhouse/Lisa Darmanin AUS closely followed by Renée Groenveld/Steven Krol NED and Billy Besson/Marie Riou FRA on 3rd are the top ranks in the Nacra-17 mixed multihulls.
Chinese athletes are on the first places of the RS:X windsurfers with Aichen Wang CHN leading in the men ahead of Juan-Manuel Moreno ESP and Federico Esposito ITA, while Peina Chen CHN is on top of the women in front of Victoria Chan HKG and Laura Linares ITA.

Light and shifty winds prevailed yesterday for the first races of the Hyères Worldcup, and both Laser fleets sailed two races. Some of the top-shots are already now badly needing the discard of the worst result ... if not more.
Alicia Cebrian ESP has taken the lead in the Lasers Radial with the day ranks 5 and 1. Gintare Scheidt LTU, qualified for Hyères thanks to the top result at the Palma Trofeo, is on the 2nd place. Emma Plasschaert BEL follows as 3rd. The World nbr 1 Marit Bouwmeester NED is on rank 13 for the moment, just behind Alison Young GBR 12th. Even worse for Paige Railey USA 29th, Tina Mihelic CRO 36th and Annalise Murphy IRL 39th who did not have happy evenings either.
The first two positions in the Lasers Standard are Croatian with Filip Jurisic CRO und Tonci Stipanovic CRO, followed on rank 3 by Sam Meech NZL. Major downers for some of the favorites with Tom Burton AUS on 14, Nick Thompson GBR on 17, Philipp Buhl GER on 29 and Bruno Fontes BRA on 36. They all badly wait for more wind, and already today, an up to 14 kn breeze should make things different.

The light-wind specialists in the Swiss team took advantage of the conditions and achieved remarkable results such as in the RS:X male windsurfers Mateo Sanz-Lanz SUI on rank 8 after 2 heats in the fleet of the 40 world-best windsurfers. Linda Fahrni/Maja Siegenthaler SUI, are despite of a missed start on rank 9 in the 470 women. The 17th place after two races in the 470 men is a good sign, that Yannick Brauchli/Romuald Hausser SUI have improved their light-wind skills. Not according to plan was the first day for Matias Bühler/Nathalie Brugger SUI as 35th in the first race of the Nacra 17, but with rank 11 in the second race, they came back rapidly and are now 24th overall.

Nothing special to report from the South Atlantic ! The never-ending starbord tack in a moderate breeze continued during the past 24 hours and the six VOR 65 are sailing at similar speeds within approx 5 miles. 'Abu Dhabi' (Ian Walker GBR) leads for the moment 1,4 miles ahead of 'Alvimedica' (Charlie Enright USA) and 'SCA' (Samantha Davies GBR). 'Brunel' (Bouwe Bekking NED) as last is only 4,8 miles behind the leader. Good news from 'Dongfeng', as the water processing unit could be repaired.

Since the start on Sunday, the six teams have been sailing on a long tack direction East to the trade-winds in a moderate reaching breeze allowing the Volvo 65s to progress at a 15 kn average speed. The fleet is still sailing closely together at sight. This morning the all-female 'SCA' team of Samantha Davies GBR was ahead but only 0,1 miles in front of 'Mapfre' (Iker Martinez ESP) and 'Abu Dhabi' (Ian Walker GBR) at 0,4 miles ! The story of the day however is the breakdown of the water processing unit on 'Dongfeng'. The backup unit is driven manually and this means physical efforts during 10 hours a day to produce the daily required 35 litres water. And this for at least another 15 days to the end of leg 6 !
