Not over yet, but Andrew Landenberger sits comfortably on top. Solid racing for him all week in every condition.To bad not having Brad fighting till the end, he was on fire with two bullets, but yesterday his chances were gone with a destroyed hull. Ben Moon moving fast to the top ten and Dna builder Arno Terra having a great event too. More later today after final race.More info at Circolo Vela Arco & acateuro2012.ch

Below report by Charles Bueche
"Two races were scheduled for today. Landy has got the 4th rank twice, giving him an advantage of 7 points over his first follower Chris Field, which lost chance of winning the title during race 7 where he ended at rank 17.

Other noticeable good results are two second places for the impressive catamaran veteran Scott Anderson (AUS 902), promoting him to 4th place, 2 points behind Manuel Calavia (ESP 11). Scott could still land on the podium tomorrow, stay tuned. Steve Brewin (AUS 4) and Ben Moon (USA 11) each scored a bullet today.
The wind was very strong today, more than 22 knots in the buoys area, and 15-20 knots in other zones.

Brad Collet (AUS 10) was victim of a crash right before the first start of the day. As Brad had priority, a protest is underway, he might get redress, potentially changing the results. Rumors says Brad might sail the boat of Andrew Landenberger for the remaining race."
