Tristan Brown holds a slender lead going into day 3 with Aaron Delongville snapping at his heals, however the big mover has been former Cherub and I14 sailor Dave Von Felton who showed some great moments on day 2, leading 2 races and unlucky not to claim that maiden win.

More great performances have come from within the fleet, young Tom Devine is proving incredibly hard to beat on his 6.9m rig, he sits 4th overall and has sat in 2nd for long periods of races at times. Other young sailors going well are Jamie Bougher, Liam Seagreen and Griselda Khng all showing moments of brilliance.

It has been a real showcase event for the class, with great racing and spectators on the hill at Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club were treated to a spectacle of foiling with racing being held right in front of the club and its natural amphitheatre.
