More wind today at Sarasota, but the course continued to be quite tricky, just watch the interview made by Olivier Bovyn to Danny & Kostas, and I also have confirmation on this from the Arg crews. We saw Smith-Heuser leading some races or top 3 at top marks, but later lost positions on the shifts and lulls.
Still this affects all crews and the Greeks are doing the best job closing each regatta. Burvill & Puttman scored, 2,5 & 6 to a second overall.

The US favorite teams went for the hunt today and Easton-Burd are holding 3rd overall. Reiss & Whitehead climbed to 8th.

4th place for a crew we overlooked inspite of their recent excellent performances from the Europeans to the UK Nats a few weeks ago. Hans & Marius Van Dam are killing it like top notch Pros, yesterday in light winds and today also in double trap conditions.

Heemskerk & Dekker definitely a bit behind now in total pts and defeding the tilte is now a remote possiblity, but if we follow Danny Paschalidis comments, anything can happen, no one has a granted spot on this course.

Arg crews doing well, they need to close race better, speed is there. 3 Arg crews in the top 11 and the leaders recognize it too in their interview above.

Bovyn also reported at F18 Class fb on Manu Boulogne : "Big crash during Race 3, Boulogne-Marfaing being hit by one of the late competitors when running full speed downind, leading the fleet by 100+ meters..."

Updated Top ten overall provisional after 4  Races, Boulogne was awarded a 1st RDG and a 10th RDG after they were hit in race 3 while leading by a good distance as reported above b Olivier Bovyn.  Full results list here.
