With lighter windspeeds than the previous day, all three classes were able to race. Windsurfing reverted back to fleet racing.

In Girl's and Boy's Windsurfing, the overall leaders remained unchanged as Giorgia Speciale (ITA) and Alexandros Kalpogiannakis (GRE) kept up their excellent form on the water. 

Speciale has yet to finish outside the top three during the competition and is 13 points ahead of second-placed Manon Pianazza (FRA). Entering the top three for the first time is Naama Gazit (ISR) who is now level on points with her French opponent.

"I started the day not so good (7th, discarded) but my second race was better and in the last race I finished second," she said.  "The wind was really shifty and the course kept changing so we spent a long time on the water, but I'm really happy to be in the top three."

There's a close fight between Kalpogiannakis and Nicolo Renna (ITA) in the Boy's fleet. The pair are separated by six points, with third-placed Finn Hawkins (GBR) 15 points behind the Italian.

"It was a really tricky day today; a lot was happening and the wind was flicking about all over the place," said Hawkins. "You had to pick your spot, find your outwind and try and get some consistent results."

Racing continues at 12:00 local time on Thursday 11th October
