Day 3 - Course B

The girls fleet sailed three races today leaving them only two behind the full programme. Norway's 18-year-old Caroline Rosmo leads her 76-boat fleet with three race wins from four starts. The Oslo sailor explained her race strategy was all about staying on the high tack but she revealed a change of plan for race two when the wind swung into the east. "For this race I decided it was the strong current [a two-knot flood tide] that was the dominant factor for me". It is Rosmo's first time to lead at a world championships. Top Irish girls are Dun Laoghaire's Nicole Hemeryck in 13th and Howth's Aoife Hopkins in 18th overall. Racing continues tomorrow with a forecast for stronger winds. In a third change to the sailing instructions, the race committee says it intends to race three races back to back tomorrow.
