The sailors had to struggle with a weak and also extremely changeable wind on Sunday. With the sonar boats, the US team coped best with these conditions. Helmsman John Ross-Duggan and his crew are now leading the class.

The Americans had already moved up to first place at the start of the first race on Sunday after a successful protest against the Israelis. They had won both races on Saturday, so they were initially at the top. But then they were subsequently disqualified for a race.

Jens Kroker from Berlin and his two crews Peter Reichl and Olaf Jacobs showed yesterday that they are able to do a lot more than they did on Saturday. Two second places catapulted her from the initially disappointing ninth place to fourth place.

With the 2.4mR single-handed sailors, Heiko Kröger from Kiel was able to prove his stable form once again. After the Sydney gold medalist had already achieved third place on Saturday, he stayed there at the end of yesterday. He finished third in both races.

A US sailor is now one step ahead with the 2.4. Tom Brown won both races on Sunday, displacing the previous day's double winner Damien Seguin from France to second place.

Today, Monday, the three-man sonar keelboats will start again, the solo sailors in their 2.4mR keelboats will have a day off. You don't have to get back on the water until tomorrow.
