Sailors looking to extend dominance

NATHAN Outteridge and Iain Jensen have the chance to put clear air between themselves and their rivals when races nine, 10 and 11 of the 49er class are contested at Weymouth tonight.

The pair was 13 points clear of their nearest opponents after the first six races (seven and eight were scheduled last night).

Also looking for two good races tonight is Tom Slingsby, the favourite for the laser class. After his first six races. Slingsby was in second place, just one point behind Cypriot Pavlos Contides.

The Australian's campaign has been hampered by very slow starts in three of his six races.
