Day three of the ILCA4/Laser 4.7 Youth World Championships and more changes at the top of the leader board in the boy's division as the competition reaches the half-way stage.

Less than 10 points separate the top three sailors with Alexandros Eleftheriadis (GRE) now top of the leaderboard with an impressive 1, 6 in today's racing.

Best of the Irish is Howth Yacht Club's Rocco Wright moving up into 27th place after six qualifying races sailed in the 150-boat fleet.

Boys Overall: 1st Alexandros Eleftheriadis (GRE) 17pts, 2nd Martins Atilla (LAT) 21pts, 3rd Antonio López Martínez (ESP) 26pts, 4th Joan Ravie (ESP) 32pts, 5th Omer Vered Vilenchikm (ISR) 35pts.

Winds are to strengthen tomorrow but as they are forecast to remain offshore and westerly in direction, watching out for wind shifts will be an important race strategy for Dublin Bay.

Marednic leads girls division

Petra Marednic (CRO) has a firm hold on the top spot in the girl's divisions.

Marednic continues to steal the show with another two first-place finishes. She ends the qualifying series with 7 points from 5 scoring races.

As impressive as this is, Emma Mattivi (ITA) is hot on Petras heels and is on 12 points, with Claudia Adán Lledó (ESP) holding on close behind in 3rd with 15points.

The top Irish is Eimer Mcmorrow Moriarty in 38th place in the 80-boat fleet

Girls Overall: 1st Petra Marednic (CRO) 7pts, 2nd Emma Mattivi (ITA) 12pts, 3rd Claudia Adán Lledó (ESP) 15pts, 4th Gaia Bolzonella (ITA) 23pts, 5th Roos Wind (NED) 25pts.

229 boys and girls are competing from 31 different countries for the overall prize that is being hosted jointly by the harbour's National Yacht Club and Royal St. George Yacht Clubs
