Good performances in moderate but shifty breezes on the third day of the Perth International Regatta have seen Australian sailors taking the overall lead in three of the class events racing today.

After the three races in the morning for 49ers, Australians Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen have a ten point overall lead from Chris Draper and Peter Greenhalgh from Great Britain. Emmanuel Dyen and Stephane Christidis (FRA) are in third position.

Outteridge said the Australians had a good morning's racing in the shifting easterly offshore breeze. "We got it right with two race wins. In the middle race we lost an early shift but still managed to come home fifth. It was a really good day," he said.

ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year, Tom Slingsby of Australia, is leading in the Laser Full Rig after five races. He is followed by Tonci Stipanovic of Croatia with the New Zealander Andrew Murdoch lying in third place.

The other Australian success story at the half way mark of the regatta is in the Laser Radial with Matthew Wearn sitting three points clear of 2010 World Champion Sari Multala of Finland, with another Finnish sailor Tuula Tenkanen another three points behind. The Radials had some thrilling racing with the women now filling thee of the first four overall places.

Sailing superstar Ben Ainslie from Great Britain took third place in the only Finn race completed to move into fourth place overall. He lies behind Jonathan Lobert of France, Giles Scott of Great Britain and Rafa Trujillo Villar of Spain. The flukey conditions led to the abandonment of the sixth race on the Finns schedule.

The RS:X fleets completed two races today in the moderate conditions. With four now completed, the Men's RSX leader is Dorian Van Rijsselberge from Netherlands and Marina Alabau from Spain is heading up the open fleet.

The Israeli crew of Gideon Kliger and Eran Sela remain in overall first place in the Men's 470. In the women's 470 event, Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie from New Zealand continue to hold overall lead.
