Õhtust raportit vaadates selgus, et St. Iv on soodsa tuule leidnud, kell 16 oli kiirus 6 sõlme! Ja oma kohta C klassi jahtide hulgas kergitanud, arvestuse järgi on kerkinud esiviisikusse.

Statsraad Lemkuhl (Norway) has held on to her lead on corrected time overall and in Class A, keeping Christian Radich (Norway) in second place both overall and in Class A. Joining them now in third place overall and in Class A is the third Norwegian ship Sorlandet, with any of them able to win the race in the current conditions.
In Class B Jens Krogh (Denmark) has held on to her lead on corrected time with Albanus (Finland) remaining in second place and Constantia (Sweden) moving up to third place.
The battle of the Class C vessels is also beginning to hot up with Dar Natury (Poland) now taking the lead on corrected time with fellow Polish vessel Dar Szczecina in second place and Sharki, also from Poland, in third place.
Svanen (Denmark) has moved up to take the lead in Class D on corrected time, with Rona II (UK) back up into second place and Thyra (Denmark) moving up into third place.
On the water Dar Mlodziezy (Poland) is in the lead ahead of Fazisi (USA) and Helena (Finland) all of which should cross the finish line in the early hours of the morning.
Winds are forecast to continue favourably which should help the fleet continue to make good progress. Although the winds are forecast to ease a little in the coming days, they should be sufficient to see even the back markers across the finish line in good time.
Õhtul oli regatiliste "kunstiteos" selline:
Kell 0130 (2230 UTC) seisuga on A klassi esikolmiku purjelaevad Osmussaare lähedal, Dar Mlodziezy ees, Statsraad Lemkuhl ja Christian Radich peaaegu kõrvuti sabas. Mõne tunni pärast on nad finišis, kella kolme ja viie vahel öösel (tuul on meite kandis kasinavõitu). Võib-olla ka päris hommikul, sest kiirused neil kukkunud 3 ja 5 sõlme vahemikku.
Sedov on aga Kõpu poolsaare tippu selja taha jätmas:
