Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark are in the gold medal position in the women's 470.

After their race there will be the men's 470 medal race and then the two 49er medal races.

No medal possible in the men's 470 for the British pair Luke Patience and Chris Grube.

Or in the women's 49erFX medal race, for Charlotte Dobson and Sophie Ainsworth.

But, in the men's 49er the British pair Dylan Fletcher and Alain Sign have a chance of a silver or bronze medal.

It will be difficult but the chance is there . . .

And it was gold for Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark in the women's 470, and fifth overall for Luke Patience and Chris Grube in the men's 470.

In the men's 49er Dylan Fletcher and Alain Sign got into a possible medal position then capsized on the leeward mark.

The women's 49erFX was a fairytale gold for Brazil's Martine Soffiatti Grael and Kahena Kunze.

Charlotte Dobson and Sophie Ainsworth finished eighth overall.
