Shahar Zubari opened a seven point lead at the top of the European windsurfing Championship standings on Tuesday. The 22-year-old won the first contest on Tuesday, his fourth victory in five races in the competition to that stage, and finished the second race of the day in fifth position. Following Tuesday's races, each surfer's poorest result was dropped from the overall score, which in Zubari's case was his 12th place finish in race 4 on Monday. All this now means Zubari is currently in first position on nine points, with France's Julien Bontemps in second place with 16 points. Portugal's Joao Rodrigues is third, a further nine points back, with Israel's Nimrod Mashiah continuing his rise up the standings on Tuesday, climbing three places to seventh position. Ma'ayan Davidovich remained in the hunt for the medals in the women's competition on Tuesday. The 21-year-old was disqualified in the first race, a result which doesn't count in the overall standings as it was her worst of the competition, and finished third later in the day. Blanca Manchon continues to lead the standings on eight points, with Marina Albau in second place (16), Bryony Shaw in third (17) and Davidovich in fourth position a further point back. The surfers will enjoy a rest day on Wednesday, with the competition to continue on Thursday and Friday before Saturday's medal races.
