49er & 49erFX Worlds - Conditions halt racing

After the 49erFX women managed to complete their racing in the morning at race 10, racing for the men's 49er was abandoned as the wind strength hit 30+ knots with big seas.

Denmark's Jena Mai Hansen and Katja Salskov-Iversen take over the lead (11,1,2,1) with 14 points, with Alex Maloney and Molly Meech (2,4,7,11) of New Zealand second on 19 points.

Third are Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze (1,3,3,10) of Brazil with 21 points, and fourth Germany's Vicky Jurzcok and Anika Lorenz (4,9,6,6) on 32 points.

Britain's Charlotte Dobson and Saskia Tidey (3,14,4,4) move into fifth place - despite capsizing when leading the second race - on 34 points.

Kate MacGregor and Sophie Ainsworth (9,19,18,14) are tenth overall.

The situation is not looking good for Saturday's final racing in Porto, but they will try to get the men's 49er out early to catch-up with the racing, then the women later if the weather is co-operative.

Scores below are for the four race Friday with overall after 10 races:
