After three gold fleet races, Ireland’s Finn Lynch has moved up to second overall, according to provisional results.

With one day of competition left tomorrow to decide the overall honours, the National Yacht Club ace is 14 points off the overall lead in a fleet of 139 entries drawn from 44 countries.

At lunchtime today, the fleet was signalled with ‘AP over H’ on the water and ‘AP’ displayed ashore for the Silver fleet bringing Tuesday racing to a conclusion.

The on-form Rio Olympian signalled his intentions of making good on his campaign for Paris 2024 after missing out on Tokyo with a seventh at the European Championships just a month ago.

A 3D aerial laser display developed by a team of Japanese researchers that can display text and images in mid air.

A 1kHz infrared pulse fires directly into a 3D scanner which focuses and reflects the laser to specific points in 3D space, ionising air molecules which release energy in the form of photons.

Much as you’d expect.
