With just 6 races to go, the international battle lines have been drawn for the final third of the Puma Moth World Championships.  Simon "Slim" Payne leads with 17 points with Brad "Slim" Funk and Arnaud "Slim" Psarofaghis tied on 20, while Andrew "Slim" Mcdougall and Dalton "Slim" Bergan round out the top 5.  See a pattern here?

Another three races are scheduled today with more marginal foiling conditions and hot sun, and rather than write a big story (we’re recovering from the ridiculous 3000+ strong Nasimi Beach party last night) we’ll just leave you with the DOSC report and the official Puma press release, and remind you to check out another pile of great interviews, photos, and instant race results in the Day 5 OTW Forum Thread, and of course more excellent LIVE streaming action from today’s racing right here on the Special Report.

Oh yeah, and maybe you’d like to check out five minutes of maybe the best moth video produced yet, thanks again to the support of PUMA Ocean Racing and CST Composites.

Huge props to the Rev. Petey Crawford for his outstanding video production!
