Italy’s Mattia Di Martino stayed on gold medal course at the Optimist Asian and Oceanian Championship in Abu Dhabi, despite losing his impressive 100% winning record. After recording four successive victories over the first two days of the international regatta, Di Martino had to settle for a tenth place finish on Thursday in a race won by Australian Augustas Buividas.

It was still enough, however, to see the young Italian retain his overall lead from Spain’s Joan Domingo, who followed up a third win today with a tenth place result. That came in a race won by Thailand’s Chanatip Tongglum, whose second victory of the regatta lifted her to third place in the overall standings.

Italian Pietro Lucchesi climbed to 13th position with a first win in Abu Dhabi, taking victory ahead of Singapore’s Ethan Ethan, silver medallist at last year’s South East Asian Games, and Turkey’s Derin Degisen. The day’s final fleet race saw Hong Kong’s Zihan Liu move to 12th in the standings.
