Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta - RS:X windsurfing - J P Tobin leading going into gold medal race

Jon-Paul Tobin still leads and has shaken off his on-shore friend Dorian van Rijsselberge of the Netherlands with nine points over him in the standings. However he now faces the attack of local rider Nick Dempsey who has pulled himself up to 2nd place with one point separating the two at the top.

“Pretty tricky, sailed some nice lines to punch in two solid results, Nick Dempsey sailed really well,” tells Tobin. “I maintain a one point lead going into the medal race tomorrow...POW!”

Tobin’s results from day five were a 2nd and a 4th.

Tom Ashley also starts in the medal race for New Zealand, lying 9th overall well within reach of gaining another place or two if things go his way in tomorrow’s medal race. Yesterday the Olympic champ reported his health had been running at less than 100% through this regatta.
