The conditions for the 49er gold fleet were full power all day, 10 to 14 knots of easterly breeze out in Weymouth Bay. However, there were significant lines of gust and lull across the lumpy course, with a few wind shifts thrown in for good measure. Peter Burling and Blair Tuke managed to negotiate the pot holes with a very solid 6,4,2 which moves them back into the lead, 7 points ahead of the Spanish, Diego Botin and Iago Lopez, who scored 8,12,6. “We were starting well,” said Botin, “but sometimes a good start put you in the wrong place and we didn’t feel that lucky today. Still happy with how we sailed though. It’s very hard to be consistent all the time.”

Dylan Fletcher and Stu Bithell had one of the best days of anyone, 4,7,1 putting the third-placed British team further ahead of the chasing pack and just 5 points behind the Spaniards. In fourth is another British crew, James Peters and Fynn Sterritt who are plugging away with some very solid scores of 2,14,5. However it was the experienced German crew, Erik Heil and Thomas Ploessel, who had the best of the day with 5,1,4, which moves the 2016 Olympic bronze medallists to just 4 points behind the fellow Germans and training partners Justus Schmidt and Max Boeme. The other race winner of the day were France’s Erwan Fischer and Clément Pequin who move into 9th overall.

The top-performing crew of the previous day were Sebastien Schneiter and Lucien Cujean who slipped down to 10th after a disappointing day. But the conditions are forecast to turn a little more ‘Swiss’, with lighter winds on the cards which could suit this team and others that are more used to the softer end of the wind spectrum.
