Day Four Summary
After three races, and the possibility of a first discard, the PWA Super-X fleet spent a windless afternoon waiting to run the all important fourth race here in Costa Brava. Days one and two saw thermal wind action with large sails being the call, but today gave only still and humid conditions.
Kevin Pritchard (US-3 Starboard / Maui Sails), continues to hold pole position, ahead of brother Matt Pritchard (US-10 Tabou /Gaastra) in second. Thereâ€™ll be no love lost as Matt breaths down Kevinâ€™s neck, ready to pressure him into any mistakes he can, in his quest for a third world Super-X title.

Its super close at the top, with only three sailors making all the finals so far. Peter Volwaterâ€™s (H-24 F2 / North Sails) consistency seeâ€™s him in 3rd place approaching the first discard. Already counting a first and third, Antoine Albeau (F-192 Starboard / Neil Pryde Sails) in 10th place, is desperate for a fourth race, and the chance to lose the points he accumulated in his 3rd race disqualification.
