Udi Gal and Gidi Kliger moved up to 11th place in the 470 Class sailing World Championships in Melbourne after finishing Saturday's only race in second position. The Israeli team had slipped all the way down to 15th position after a disappointing day of racing on Friday, ending its three races in 15th, 2nd and 26th, respectively. "The competition only really gets under way now," the duo said. "The most important thing is to maintain our consistency and concentration throughout the event. The competition is wide open." In the women's competition, Nika Kornecki and Vered Buskila are in eighth place overall.
