#STAR WORLDS – After a consistent showing on the south coast of France this week Peter O'Leary and David Burrows stay third overall with only one race left to sail at the Star world Championships.
The pair escaped trouble today but discarded the 18th scored, the worst result of the five races sailed. It leaves them six points adrift of Brazil's Robert Sheidt and Bruno Prada in second and three points clear of Poland's Mateusz Kuniereweicz and Dominik Zyxcki.
Britain's Olympic Gold medallists Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson lead the 72-boat fleet by a margin of five points.
In reality the top six to eight overall are all in contention for a medal which means a good result in race six is crucial if the Cork-Dublin duo are to stand on the podium in Hyeres tomorrow night.
