All change in Race 6 as Jose Manuel Ruiz/Fernando Davila (ESP) finished 2nd and jumped up to take the lead, by 6 points, with Dominguez/Abalo moving back up the leaderboard from a 6th place finish, to end the day in second overall and Singapore’s Jia Yi Loh/Jonathan Yeo in third.

Kimberly Lim/Savannah Siew (SIN) retain their overnight lead and go into the final series heading up the gold fleet. Italy’s Carlotta Omari/Francesca Russo Cirillo move up to second overall and Greece’s Aikaterini Tavoulari/Fotini Koutsoumpou (GRE) are in third.
