Semaine Olympique Francaise - The objective of the day to finish the programme before the final stage has been reached!

Sailing started late due to a summery weather, more appropriate for lazing in the shade than sailing a regatta! The chances to conclude the qualifications looked grim but finally by 8PM the last boats came back to the dock after a long day of wait and sail.

Beijing Bronze medallist Shahar Zubari (ISR) (Men's RS:X) added a third victory to his score and takes the lead in the Men's division over Silver medallist Julien Bontemps (FRA) after a series of top three results. 'So far my best series in a regatta is top five at last year's Europeans. I am very happy with my results so far. I usually prefers light wind but this year I have worked a lot on the planning and now I see the results.'

Zubari (ISR) who won RS:X Mens in Hyères in 2009 is keen to gain the title one more time. 'The level is very high and it will be harder with the Gold fleet tomorrow. We will see, there are still three days to go.'

Also in RS:X Mens, Piotr Myszka (POL) loses two places to third with an eight place finish. He is on equal point with Olympic champion Tom Ashley (NZL).

'Today was a difficult race for me.' says Myszka, 'I started very well. I knew I had to go to the right side of the course but I could not tack because I was blocked on the starboard tack. I went too far left and at the first mark I was only 16th. Then I had a good ride with the wind and was ninth on the leeward mark and finished eighth after passing Cariolou (CYP) on the slalom. I was exhausted but happy. After a poor start I finished the race in a good position... Of course, I went down to third overall but now with the start of the finals I will be able to check with Shahar Zubari (ISR).'

In women's RS:X, ISAF Sailor of the Year Blanca Manchon (ESP) is going into the Gold group with a nine points lead over Charline Picon (FRA). Peina Chen (CHN) in third and Laura Linares (ITA) placed fifth, won today's races.

Same podium in the 470 men but change of leader with Palma winners Nicolas Charbonnier (FRA) and Jeremie Mion (FRA) taking first place without yet to win a race. They are one point in front of Pierre Leboucher (FRA) / Vincent Garos (FRA)on equal point with World champions Mat Belcher and Malcolm Page (AUS).

'Our objective on this regatta was to have regular results. Today we collect another third place and gained first overall so all is good. Tomorrow another regatta is starting with the Gold fleet, the level will change.'

Two french also in the Star class top three. Guillaume Florent and Pascal Rambeau (FRA) win the unique race of the day to place second in front of Xavier Rohart and Pierre-Alexis Ponsot (FRA) second in the race. Robert Scheidt and Bruno Prada (BRA) keep their earlier lead.

In the 49er, yesterday leaders Fletcher/Sign (GBR) conserve their lead despite a place of 19th. The Nielsen (DEN) and Sibello (ITA) brothers are in second and third.

Laser World Champion Tom Slingsby (AUS) has secured a nine points lead. Nick Maloney (NZL) and Simon Grotelueschen (GER) are in second and third. The young German add a third victory to his score.

'I am really happy with my day, especially in these conditions. Normally I am better in the breeze.' With 1m94, Grotelueschen masters the stronger conditions and proved it with a first and a second in Palma with 25knots and on Sunday with two bullets taken in the breeze in the opening day of the regatta. 'I realise that it is close racing and the next days will be hard but I feel confident and relax.'

In the Laser Radial, Sara Winther (NZL) is conserving top place in the overall rankings. Sarah Steyaert (FRA), who won the 2008 Worlds in New Zealand, wins the race and gets closer to first placing, one point only from Winther. Marit Bouwmeester (NED) is bouncing back from yesterday 27th place to take second and third overall.

In the Finn, Ben Ainslie (GBR) is back at the front after a perfect day and two bullets.

'It was a really tricky day – the wind was all over the place and there were lots of place changes in all of the races, but I was happy to get through with two good races in the end considering everything that went on, so it was a good day.'

Also in the Finns, Pieter-Jan Postma (NED) is continuing with regular results to take second overall. Ed Wright (GBR) climbs on the podium. Young Estonian Deniss Karpak (EST) wins both races in his group and get to seventh overall.

In the Womens Match racing, today saw some tight matches and half way in the repechage, no team are clearly leading. Abrahamsen team (DEN), who has qualified in the repechage for the first time, have won their most difficult matches against last year winner Hallbrock (GER) and Spithill (AUS). The six teams selected in the Gold group have completed half of their matches for the seedings. Claire Leroy (FRA) who had won all their matches have finished the day with 0-3.

In the three paralympic classes, yesterday winners are extending their lead.
