    Allison Shreeve (AUS) and Jessica Crisp (AUS) are both determined to get the Olympic spot for Athens - but only one can go. In their continuing battle today, Shreeve came up trumps in Race 3, then Crisp returned the favour, winning Race 4. It is Shreeve, though, who continues to lead the point score on equal points with Faustine Merret (FRA), but leading the French girl on count back.

    Great Britains girls are having a battle of their own too - the younger, newer girl to the class, Bryony Shaw, currently in fourth place, leaving the favoured Natasha Sturges down in 11th place overall.

    Meanwhile, Julian Bontemps (FRA) continues to lead the Mistral Mens, with two wins today from two races.

    Max Oberemko (UKR) also continues to show his racing skills, with a 3-2 result for second overall.

    Representative from the Sydney 2000 Olympics, Lars Kleppich (AUS) had a more successful day today with a second place in Race 3 and a third in Race 4, showing that age is no barrier at the end of the day.  This result has put him in third place overall, his Olympic chances for Athens looking better and better.
