Thomas and Tuke lead 29er Worlds after day 2

Matching race to race, the “downunder” pairing of Aussie Steven Thomas and Kiwi Blair Tuke won all three races in their flight while Americans Judge Ryan and Matt Noble equalled by winning all their races as well. The two teams are separated by one point and lead yesterday's leaders of Hayley Outteridge and Iain Jensen by five points.

Conditions were lighter today but built from 13 to 18 knots to give the sailors great conditions on Lake Garda. The Aussies currently have three of the top five spots, with David O'Connor and Rhys Mara in 4th, rounded out by the Argentine team of Pepe Bettini and Fernando Gwozdz in 5th.

Top 10 positions are:

1 AUS 1 Steven Thomas, Blair Tuke 5,0 1 (3) 1 1 1 1
2 USA 28 Judge Ryan, Matt Noble 6,0 2 1 (dsq) 1 1 1
