World junior champion Ho Chi-ho has made the cut for the gold fleet after showing his class to finish eighth in his race at the European Championships in Puck, Poland. Competing on the red course in the men's fleet, Ho was suited to the light wind conditions and had an excellent start for the first time. Hong Kong assistant coach Lisa Neuburger described Ho's performance as 'strong and tactically sound' and on par with the best performing sailors of his age group. Ho's good day in the qualifying competition allowed him to scrape into the gold fleet in 41st position overall - three spots above the cut-off place. Meanwhile, Chan Wai-kei got buried at the start, and despite gaining ground throughout the race, scored her worst result so far - a fourth place - in the girl's youth competition. Chan is still second overall, with Spaniard Ines Fernandez still leading the fleet. Another Hong Kong contestant, Lee Shueng-yin, also had problems obtaining clear wind at the start but still managed seventh place to move up to claim 13th place overall in the 36-strong youth boys' fleet.
