Sparkling conditions greeted sailors with a 12 (ish) knot sea breeze for heats 3 and 4. The left hand side of the course was generally favoured and getting clear air on that side was key.
Craig and Ian Rainey (3880) recorded a first and a second to sit solidly clear on the results sheet. Lewis and John (3988) had conditions more to their liking with a fourth and a win to sit second overall and Ashley and Kym (3972) were 9th and 5th to slip into third. 
David Tabb from the UK and David Bennett from South Australa (3941) overcame early breakages and illness to score 2 thirds for the day .
John and Kevin moved into fourth overall with a second and a seventh. 
Graham and Sara (2876) are building a good score in their effort to retain the silver title and still compete towards the front of the open fleet.
Five races to go so, like a plate of free venison,  it’s anybody’s game……
