Berikut adalah petikan berita dari website kejohanan tersebut:

 

Day three of the RIIR 2013 wasn't the best one could have hoped for, but was considerably better than the first 2 days. Three races were held for the 29er class, and 2 each for the Optimist and the Laser 4.7 classes.

 

In the morning it was a land breeze of 6 to 8 knots from 280 deg which oscillated about 10 to 20 deg to the right. The first race for the day started off a little after noon on the northern side of the harbour. Two races for the 29ers and one each for the Optimist and Laser 4.7 was conducted there before the sea breeze set in from 100 deg by around 2.30 PM. The race committee then shifted the racing area to the South of the harbour as with wind from this direction it would be impossible to lay a course in the northern side and the entire fleet moved South. Here one race was held for each of the class.

 

In the 29er category, the Slovenian Siblings Peter Lin and Lea Dora continued to dominate winning 2 of the 3 races and held their overall position on top. New Zealanders Markus and Isaac won the other race and finished 2nd in the other two races and overtook the Indian pair Ganapathy and Varun on the leaderboard to 2nd position overall. Ganapathy and Varun, with just one 2nd in a race and poor finishes in the other two say they made a couple of bad judgements on the wind shift which was the cause of the poor position in 2 of the races and in the final race for the day, though the led initially, one bad jibe cost them the first position, They are however just 2 points behind New Zealand and hope to put up a better show tomorrow.

 

The first Laser 4.7 race was won by Upamanyu with Dheer Singhi and Nethra Kumanan in 2nd and 3rd places. Girls dominated the next race with Janaki Balachander bagging her 2nd gun and the girl sailor from Malaysia Khairun Hanna Afendy finishing 2nd. With 2 firsts, Janaki is now in 3rd position overall threatening to unseat Upamanyu who is just 2 points ahead of her. Dheer Singhi continues to hold his position at the top.

 

In the Optimist category Malaysians swept away all the top positions in both the races except for Mahesh Balachander from India who finished 2nd in the first race of the day. In the second race, the fleet was extremely aggressive, several went over the line despite a black flag start and their race could be started only after 3 recalls. Finally when the race started, 10 sailors were disallowed from sailing the race because of Black Flag violation. Malaysian girl sailor Natasya Nabila slipped to 21st position thanks to black flag violation while Indian girls now have taken over all the top three positions with Ananya Chouhan,leading and Jayalakshmi and Diya Correa in 2nd and 3rd positions respectively.
