Nimrod Mashiah dropped one place to second position overall at the Windsurfing World Championships in Perth, Australia on Wednesday after ending the day’s one and only race in fourth place.

Mashiah remains on six negative points as his result from Wednesday’s race was his worst so far in the event and therefore does not count in his total score.

However, he fell to second overall behind Dutchman Dorian van Rijsselberghe, who is also on six points but has won more races so far in Perth.

Shahar Zubari had his best day to date in the competition on Wednesday, finishing in third place to move up to 17th position overall with 30 points.

Wednesday’s light winds played into Zubari’s hands and he will be hoping for similar conditions in the coming days so that he can close the gap on Mashiah, his rival for Israel’s one and only berth at the windsurfing competition at the London Olympics.

Gil Cohen and Vered Buskila enjoyed an excellent day, climbing five places in the women’s 470 Class competition to fourth overall.

Cohen and Buskila, who are set to represent Israel in London, won the first race of the day before ending the second in eighth place, closing to within four points of the top three.
