Tokyo 2020 Olympic gold medallists Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti won another three races to extend their incredible run at the 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 World Championships in Nova Scotia.

Their run of form means they have only failed to win one race throughout the Nacra 17 event, but this was erased, leaving a perfect score of 11.

Italians Gianluigi Ugolini and Maria Giubilei remain the closest to their compatriots, but sit 37 net points below.

It was a much a better day of racing for the pair as they recorded second, fifth and third on day four.

Finnish duo Sinem Kurtbay and Akseli Keskinen remain third after registering seventh, second and sixth, while Britain’s Olympic silver medallists John Gimson and Anna Burnet have climbed to fourth with finishes of third, eighth and second.

The Finns are on 61 net points and the Britons are seven behind them.

Meanwhile, The Netherlands’s Odile van Aanholt and Annette Duetz reclaimed top spot in the 49erFX event after coming 24th, fourth, second and third.

This has given them a net total of 61, which is five better than Swedes Vilma Bobeck and Rebecca Netzler who combined for 18th, first, 14th and second.

Britain’s Freya Black and Saskia Tidey round off the podium places on 89 net points having come fifth, 10th, first and ninth.

Spanish pair Támara Echegoyen and Paula Barceló, who are four net points off Black and Tidey, will be seeking to take back their top three position following a tough day of racing which saw them record sixth, 19th, 17th and fifth.

In the 49er class, Croatian brothers Šime and Mihovil Fantela and registered two wins and fifth place from three races to close the gap to 13.

Bart Lambriex and Floris van de Werken of The Netherlands, who are on 41 net points, achieved second, second and seventh to keep first in the overall standings.

Spaniards Diego Botín and Florián Trittel moved into third with Logan Dunning Beck and Oscar Gunn in fourth and just a point outside the podium places.
