Sailing World Championships - Day 9 Results and Medal Prospects

Just two days of competition left in Aarhus, Denmark

After the excitment of the two medal races Friday (Laser and Radial) a whole bunch of qualifying series were also completed.

This means that Saturday and Sunday will see the Medal Races for five Olympic classes plus the Kiteboarders.

British Sailing Team competitors have the chance to medal in four of their events.

Saturday will see Sophie Weguelin and Sophie Ainsworth competing in the 49erFX, where they are in second place behind Austria's Tanja Frank and Lorena Abicht, but 11 points back and will have at least two other teams looking to take the silver.

In the men's 49er event, Dylan Fletcher and Stuart Bithell won their final race to finish fifth overall, and James Peters and Fynn Sterritt in sixth. Either have an outside chance of reaching the podium.

Also on Saturday are the Men and Women's Kiteboard finals, comprising three races.

Nicolas Parlier of France leads the men after 19 races, four points ahead of Britain's Guy Bridge, Theo de Ramecourt of France is in third.

In the women’s Kiteboard, Daniela Moroz (USA) leads by 13 points ahead of Elena Kalinina. Britain's Stef Bridge is in fourth place.

The final day, Sunday, will see medal races for the Nacra 17 foiler and the men and women's RS:X boards.

Britain has competitors in all three medal races, but only in the RS:X events do they have a chance of reaching the podium places.

Emma Wilson is in with a chance of silver or bronze in the women's RS:X and Kieran Holmes Martin likewise in the men's RS:X.
