The Western Australian scored another bullet and with the first drop coming into play, holds a slender one point lead over Karl Tapper (FIN).

Almost all classes raced according to schedule, only the Hansa Class had to stay inside due to, too heavy winds.

On Friday, June 21, and Saturday, June 22, New York SailGP will take place from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on the Hudson River, just off the Battery and north toward Rockefeller Park.

Luke Elliott was the best of the Australians in the Standard class, recording a race win and a 10th to sit in seventh place.

Early entries are looking good, with a strong line-up of boats and crew from Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia and Thailand.

The 49er medal race could not be held owing to light winds, leaving Will and Sam Phillips in eighth place. The Nacras did sail, with Nathan and Haylee Outteridge finishing eight in the medal race and 10th overall.

The Kiwis fought back from deep in the fleet in the medal race, to take gold by nine points.

A recommendation to select the RS:X as the Men’s and Women’s Windsurf Equipment was rejected meaning a new proposal will be required and the process on selecting the equipment for the Mixed Two Person Offshore Keelboat was also confirmed.

The slow race was more geared to sight seeing, dolphin watching and a fun barbecue at the end.

Nathan and Haylee Outteridge lifted to make the Nacra Medal Race, but the 49er sailing Phillips brothers were the standouts, sailing well in all conditions.

After discards were applied, Caol Ila knocked Jethou into second by 0.75 points and two seconds.

A lot on the line with two European titles up for grabs and two places at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games decided.

Light and shifty winds made it a huge day of shuffling on the scoreboard, especially in the Nacra 17 where the fight is on for the medals.

The Phillips brothers are keeping Australia’s hopes alive, overnight reclaiming their place in the top ten, coming back from 14th overall after a disappointing Day 4.

Behind the leaders, the battle rages for the remaining two Olympic places, with seven countries in the next nine places hoping to qualify.
