Two more rounds completed on Day 3 of the IFCA "Wind Brasil " Slalom World Championships - and it is all change at the top of the mens ranking!
French windsurfers are dominating the podium positions, where in the men's fleet we have a new leader in Sylvain Moussilmani (FRA 7). Only 1 point separates him from overnight leader Julien Quentel (FRA 421); and Antoine Questel (FRA 99) moved into bronze position, but less than 2 points separate 3rd and 5th! All to play for.
Meanwhile in the womens fleet Alice Arutkin (FRA 111) looks unbeatable.
Lots of variety in the racing format - with beach starts the order of the day for round 6.
The Media were out in full force with a helicopter buzzing over the event site for ESPN and 4 national tv stations covering the event.
Internet connection is erratic, but you can follow the racing on Twitter via the "new look" IFCA website .
