Oomens/Hummel NED follow on the 3rd position. Hansen/Porebski NZL are first in the 49ers 8 points ahead of Botin/Lopez ESP, moving up the ranks yesterday with two race wins.

Another Swiss race win yesterday in a fresh wind by Matias Bühler/Nathalie Brugger SUI finishing the last race as first, moving on rank 9 overall, and on a good way to the Medal Race of the Nacra-17. Three races are still in the program before tomorrow's Medal Race.
The Qualification Series of the 470s ends today and will be followed by the Medal Races at 17 hrs UTC today. Yannick Brauchli/Romuald Hausser SUI are on the 8th positon for the moment and have good chances to defend this rank the announced fresh breeze. Linda Fahrni/Maja Siegenthaler SUI however, have to fight to return to the top-10. Down on rank 11 after a premature start yesterday, they are only 3 points behind rank 8, and it is quite possible to regain a Medal Race position in today's races.
The youngsters Sébastien Schneiter/Lucien Cujean SUI had a hard time in the rough conditions and descended on rank 24. Elia Colombo SUI, also rather strong in light and moderate winds, achieved nevertheless a 9th rank in the RS:X men windsurfers, defending his 22nd rank overall. No improvement for Thomas Gautschi SUI remaining 18th in the Finns, and for Luciano Antonietti SUI 142nd in the Lasers Standard.

Light and unconstant winds prevailed yesterday on Lake Traun AUT during the first races of the 2015 GC32 annual series. Four heats were completed, but the wind was rarely strong enough to allow foiling, but if, the gaps between the multihulls grew considerably. While Flavio Marazzi SUI, the most experience GC32 helmsman and favorite, was not at all up to speed - last in the interim's rankings - the newcomers shined with solid racing. 'Alinghi' with Ernesto Bertarelli SUI, reinforced by the Tornado Olympic Champion Hans-Peter Steinacher AUT leads overall at equal points with 'Oman Sail' and Leigh McMillan.

The finish of the Volvo Ocean Race leg 7 was again very tight. Only 22 minutes after 'Brunel' (Bouwe Bekking NED), the second-ranked 'Mapfre' (Iker Martinez ESP) crossed the line in Lisbon. Even closer was the fight for rank 3, where 'Dongfeng' (Charles Caudrelier FRA) stalled in a calm patch at the entrance of the Tejo River loosing the podium place to 'Alvimedica', and this after a close tacking duel up to the arrival. Only 4 hours and 22 minutes after the first arrived the all-female 'SCA' team with Samantha Davies GBR as last. The report.
The overall leader 'Abu Dhabi' (Ian Walker GBR) had to content herself with the 5th place, but remains on top in the VOR rankings 5 points ahead of 'Dongfeng'. Only one point farther back is 'Brunel', also a contender for the final victory in the last two races.

The 700 participating boats at this year's Delta Lloyd Regatta in Medemblik have been welcomed by cold and windy weather. Gusty and shifty winds between 12 and 18 kn, together with the short and steep Ijsselmeer chop made sailing rough and challenging .... too much for the 'modern' Olympic classes !
With the top teams absent, there are some new names on top of the 470s. Chang-Yu Kim/Wang hoo Kim KOR are on rank one after the first day, ahead of Molund/Östling SWE and Xammar/Herp ESP. A surprise team is also on top of the 470 women with Niki Blässar/Mikaela Wulf FIN. Ainsworth/Weguelin GBR and Seabright/Carpenter GBR are the first persuers.
Abandonments and damages in the skiff classes, especially the 49erFX.

Two teams at equal points also on top of the 49ers with Hansen/Porebski NZL and Turner/...AUS.
Billy Besson/Marie Riou FRA have taken the lead in the Nacra 17 and their advance on the chasers Saxton/Diamond GBR is already 14 points after three races. Bundock/Curtis AUS are 3rd. Experienced with the special conditions on his home waters, Pieter-Jan Postma NED is on the first place in the Finns, but Arkadij Kistanov RUS and Josh Junior NZL are not far behind.
Windsurfing is dominted by the Polish team, as mostly in fresher winds. Pawel Tarnowski POL is first in the RS:X men with three race wins, and in the RS:X women, Zofia Noceti-Klepacka POL has a 7 points' lead on Lilian de Geus NED.
