A day after competition was halted due to stormy weather, action resumed yesterday at the World Sailing Championships in Perth, Australia.

Israeli windsurfer Lee Korzits continues to lead in the women's RS:X competition, after finishing second in the third race and taking first place in the fourth and fifth races. Korzits is currently three points ahead of British surfer Bryony Shaw. Maayan Davidovich is in 10th place, after finishing fifth in the third race and seventh in the fourth and fifth races.

In the men's competition, Gidi Kliger and Eran Sela are 12th overall, after finishing 9th, 11th and 3rd in their heats yesterday. Meanwhile, Nufar Edelman is ranked 50th in the women's Laser Radial event after two days of racing.

The highlight of the day, however, was when a local fisherman claimed that he spotted a shark in the water close to the competition area. A helicopter was scrambled, but there was no sign of the shark.
