All images by Ellevated Creative, sorry but none of the van Dams yet but Olivier Bovyn  did an interview with them. More pics at F18 Worlds fb. - Yet another day of a challenging racing course. 4 races completed with 4 different winners.
No one dominated today but Hans & Marius van Dam the most consistent series climbing to second place overall. Incredible work for the Dutch crew.

Leaders continue to be Danny & Kostas, but they didn't had an easy day their standards, still it was a good day cause in one of the races we could see live thanks to Jill Nickerson/ Robbie Daniel/ Red Gear Racing, the Greeks were around 26th position at the top Mark to finish 8th. That was an awesome recovery.
Later they scored a bullet for a change.
But last two races they were out of the top 5 again (7&8) , results which reduced their gap with the rest of the fleet.

Those +5 results would have been +20 for the rest in this tricky shifty venue, so in the end a saved day for the leaders with much resolution and drive. They recovered positions in every race today.

Tomorrow will be last day of racing , and the title it is not defined yet at all.
15pts separation in this specific regatta is nothing, if any doubt check Reiss & Whitehead last two results from today... just crazy.
