Boys and Girls 420, Boys RS: X and Girls Laser Radial had a combination of newcomers and veteran sailor who led the way. In the Girls 420 Class, Carmen and Emma Cowles, the gold medalists of the U.S did not quite make it in the 1st race, but bounced back to achieve victory in the 2nd race with a huge margin. As they were finishing more than 3 races, they are allowed to discard their worst finish. The Cowles will count 3 first-place finishes and will be leading the class with 4 points over Emilia Boyle and Vita Heathcote of Great Britain.

Carmel Cowles said they crossed the line a bit in the 1st race. Only if they remain cool in the boat, things would be just fine. The event is not over as yet and hence the team needs to be very careful especially on the start line. Last year, the Cowles twins won by 26 points, including all firsts and seconds and leaving aside the disqualification. Cowles said they are trying to remain focused to keep the bow down and take the pressure. Carmen is managing well with all the right controls and also ensuring that there is sufficient power.

He added that they were stoked on reaching the final so they pulled it off in the fifth race to reach the grand finale.

Takahashi led Stevenson2-0 in the other semi final clash. Takahashi was sailing hard and Stevenson was very close to the rocks. Stevenson was forced to sail towards the rocks of the Westhaven sea wall. He was black flagged and had to be towed off so Takahashi entered the finale on a high.

Wilson did well but it was obvious from the start that Takahashi had his eyes on the prize. In the pre start, he was penalized but he kept on getting rid of them with his fine sailing aided by the excellent boat speed. Takahashi was consistent, sailing to victory at the end. It is another plus for him after winning his last four match racing regattas.
