In the girls ranking another Singaporean sailor, Bertha Han,  dominated today and stands fifth overall. She is followed by Spain's Maria Bover Guerrero and in third Bte Mohd Fathin, also from Singapore.

Today was the third day of racing at the 2013 Optimist World Championships in Riva del Garda with 58 nations competing with some of the best international youth sailors.

The Race Committee have now completed a total of six races with two being held today in light wind conditions rather than the usually predictable breeze of Lake Garda: they saw 8 knots which then rose to a maximum of 14 in the second race of the day.

The fleet racing programme tomorrow takes a break to make way for the 2 day Optimist World Team Racing Championships:  48 teams  will be compete for the title, and will provide thrilling racing close to the shore of Riva del Garda.
