Piotr Myszka claimed his second RS:X windsurfing world title in Eilat today as compatriot Malgorzata Bialecka closed in on completing a Polish double ahead of tomorrow's finale.

Myszka, who also won the world title in 2010, finished first, second and third in the three races today on Israeli water to finish on a total of 27 points with just tomorrow's medal race remaining.

He leads Britain's London 2012 Olympic silver medallist Nick Dempsey by 22.8 points.

Points will be counted double tomorrow but, because only 10 boats will compete, the Polish surfer cannot be caught and is guaranteed the gold medal.

Dempsey, who finished second and third today, has a lead of just 1.2 points over The Netherlands' Miami World Cup winner Kiran Badloe.

Badloe's compatriot Dorian Van Rijesselberge lies a further six points back in fourth, despite a retirement in the last race of the day.

Myszka's victory could be followed by a similar triumph for team-mate Malgorzata Bialecka tomorrow as she continues to hold the lead heading into the women's medal race.

Bialecki will enter top of the leader board on 39 points but cannot shake off the attention of The Netherlands' Lilian De Geus, 11 points behind.

Another Polish medal could be secured by Zofia Noceti-Klepacka, currently third with 51 points.

Britain's Bryony Shaw lies fourth on 52.
