Only one more race finished on day 4 at the Asian Championship

Originally intended as a reserve day, Friday 27th was rescheduled as a race day by the Race Committee.
With light wind predominating since day 1, the championship had fallen behind schedule and it was hoped that conditions would improve and allow the permitted 3 races to be run today.
Unfortunately the competitors were greeted by an overcast sky and zero wind when they arrived at the beach; and the Race Committee had no choice but to postpone. The forecast was not promising but the wind did pick up and the sky brightened - allowing the race committee to run one race for all classes. However the second race of the day had to be abandoned as it was not possible for any competitor to finish within the set time limit for a valid race.
In Techno 293 boys a second place was sufficient to keep Sirichai Phusiri (THA 21) at the top; - and a poor 6th for Chung Heet Yee (HKG 32) was enough to remain first Techno Girl.
