Shortly after, the conditions improved again the sailors were back out again. In the following heats Frenchman Julien Taboulet (F-100, JP/ Neil Pryde) took out Marcilio Browne (BRA-105, Naish/ Naish), Greg Allaway (KA-38, Mistral/ North) put local sailor Fransisco Fonseca (P-72) to a stop, Orjan Jensen (E-19, North) sent Portuguese rider Rui Meira (P-111) back to the beach and Robby Swift (K-89, JP/ Neil Pryde) advanced at the cost of Yann Quilfen (F-21, North).

Competition is on hold for the moment as the wind has eased off slightly, but as forecast predict strong winds for the afternoon, competition will undoubtedly resume full force later today. So stay tuned to for the latest news and images from Guincho, Portugal.
