With a fourth place in today's race, Max Treacy and Anthony Shanks are perfectly placed to take advantage of the discard when it comes into place and move up the leaderboard.
The Irish crews lie in 28th and 44th overall after three races, with the O'Leary/Burrows pairing ahead. If you take away the worst score from both teams as things stand, they are on equal points, with 52 points net, meaning that they are, in effect, even stevens.
After some initial inconsistency, the top ten is full of familiary names, with Torben Grael, George Szabo, Mateusz Kusznierewicz, Mark Mendelblatt and Xavier Rohart all within striking distance of the top, and more world champions within the top 20.
