The race committee set a small course inside the harbour to take advantage of the conditions and competitors set out under chilly grey skies. Two good races were completed for Techno 293, Raceboard and RS:X.
In the RS:X fleet, Algerians Zakaria Belaidouni (ALG-27) and Bouras Hamza (ALG-12) are well matched with both taking a bullet and a fourth place, whilst Egyptian Aly Sultan (EGY-8) was third over the line in both races. Meanwhile, in the Raceboard fleet, Kheireddine Boussaha(ALG-11), Youcef Andjechairi (ALG-06) and Faycal Benserai (ALG-16) scored first, second and third exactly the same in both races.
Tunisians dominate the Techno 293 Fleet with Safouan Mami (TUN-5) at the top of the leaderboard after taking both bullets with Asiz Khoudja (TUN-7) in second place overall showing that consistency pays with two fourth places. However, Algerian Imed Brighet (ALG-28) is just one point behind. Ramzi-Ahmed Boudjatit (ALG-23) made a mistake in the first race, scored DPI, but came second in the next race. As soon as discards come into play he will also be in contention for a podium place. All to play for!
