Hong Kong's Cheng Kwok-fai took full advantage of a change of wind conditions to return with two impressive finishes in the men's mistral yesterday as the windsurfing event of the 10th National Games approached its final stages. Sailing in 8-10 knots, Cheng cruised to an eighth position in race seven among 37 participants and improved further by scoring an impressive third place in the next race. 'The wind conditions fit me well, and although there were some strong currents, I handled it carefully and was able to reach the top three in a single race for the first time,' said the youngster. Cheng suffered from very light wind conditions, about two knots, the day before when he managed a disappointing 29th place in race six. 'I still aim at reaching the top eight so that I can score points for the Hong Kong delegation, but it is difficult to tell whether I can make it as there are still three more races to go,' he added. The games offer points to all top-eight positions. The Hong Kong SAR team have scored 13 points and stand at 35th out of the 38 teams who have scored points. Cheng has improved his overall standing from 11th to eighth, but the final result will not be known until tomorrow at the completion of all 11 scheduled races. Two races are scheduled for today, with the final one to go tomorrow before a prize presentation is to be held. Compatriot Ho Chi-ho also showed progress with respective 13th and 14th places and remained 15th in the overall rankings, while another Hong Kong representative Chan King-yin came 17th and 12th in the two respective races. Chan is now 18th in the overall standings. In the women's mistral, Chan Wai-man had two good races when she finished eighth and seventh respectively. However her life was made difficult when the wind conditions died down in the third race and she managed a 16th. Her elder sister Wai-kei is 19th overall.
