World Cup Series Miami - Medal Race Day 2

British competitors have medal chances in the Finn, Laser and Laser Radial and the Men's and Women's 470 events on the second medal day at the Sailing World Cup Series in Miami.Mike Beckett GBR -

Final day of racing at the Sailing World Cup Series in Miami on Biscayne Bay and if the breeze keeps up, Team GBR could take strike more gold in the medal races.

One who will not be there is Michael Beckett in the Laser, who despite a 1 - 2 Saturday could not overcome the earlier poor light weather results to make the top 10. He finshes 19th overall.

In the Finn, Giles Scott is four points clear of Alican Kaynar of Turkey in the battle for gold.

Nick Thompson sits 30 points behind Tom Burton of Australia, who is assured of the Laser gold, so Thompson will concentrate on defending his silver position from Philipp Buhl of Germany and Sam Meech of New Zealand.

Britain's Elliot Hanson is fifth in the Laser and could steal a podium place.

In the women's Radial, Alison Young (1,9,1) came good in the heavy weather Saturday and has a five point lead ahead of Emma Plasschaert of Belgium, with Denmark's Anne-Marie Rindom also looking for a podium finish.

Luke Patience and Chris Grube, in the men's 470, also liked the strong wind a 1, 2, 1 taking them 17 points clear of Kevin Peponnet and Jeremie Mion of France.

In the women's 470 Amy Seabright and Anna Carpenter are in fifth place, 29 points off the leaders, Tina Mrak and Veronika Macarol of Slovenia who look set for gold.
