After 5 events on the Tour, Ian Williams' Team Pindar has upped its points to 72 and stretched its lead to 15 points over Sebastien Col’s French Match Racing Team/K-Challenge, who lie second with 57. Both Mathieu Richard and Torvar Mirsky leap-frogged Bjorn Hansen to make third and fourth on 47 and 45 points, respectively, leaving Hansen in 5th on 40.
