Another light day at Ready Steady Tokyo – Sailing, with much of the same low winds on Day 3 of racing.
A long day on the water to catch-up with the programme, and for the RS:X, 49er, 49erFX and Nacra 17 the cut-off for the first medal races will be decided Tuesday.
Charlotte Dobson and Saskia Tidey (3,5,12,1) continue to lead the 49erFX, ten points clear of Brazil’s Martina Grael and Kahena Kunze.
In the 49er, Dylan Fletcher and Stu Bithell (16,5,4,9) move in to fourth as Pete Burling and Blair Tuke (4,3,2,2) take a five point lead ahead of Pawel Koldzinski and Lukasz Przybytek of Poland.
The Nacra 17 saw a major change for the two GBR teams, with John Gimson and Anna Burnet (2,2,1,8) now in third place and moving ahead of rivals Ben Saxton and Nicola Boniface (6,20,11,3) who drop to fifth overall.
Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti of Italy lead the Nacra by five points from Santiago Lange and Cecillia Carranza of Argentina.
In the women’s RS:X Yunxiu Lu of China has a 12 point lead ahead of Katy Spychakov of Israel. Britain’s Emma Wilson (10,7,2,12) slips a place to fifth overall.
In the men’s RS:X, Tom Squires (12,2,11) stays in contention in the very tight leading group, in fifth place and only eight points off the leader, Mengfan Gao of China.
In the other fleets with a medal day scheduled for Thursday . . .
Hannah Mills and Eilidh Mcintyre (3,4,9) in the women’s 470, are just one point off the new leaders Ai Yoshida and Miho Yoshioka (4,6,1) of Japan. Camille Lecointra and Aloise Retornaz of France are in third place.
In the men’s 470 Australia’s Matt Belcher and Will Ryan (8,3,1) now lead by five points from Jordi Xammer and Nicolas Rodriguez of Spain.
Britain’s Luke Patience and Chris Grube (13,19,5) are in 11th, one point off 10th placed Thiesen and Mendes of Brazil, with four races still to be sailed before the medal race cut-off.
Giles Scott (10,4,6), in the Finn, did not have a good day and slips to second, nine points behind Zsombor Berecz (2,8,1) of Hungary.
Nicholas Heiner is in third place, with Kiwi Andrew Maloney best on the day taking two race wins to move into fourth overall.
Emma Plasschaert (2,10,3) of Belgium jumps into the lead of the Radial, with Canada’s Sarah Douglas (7,1,10) taking second as former leaders Maria Erdi HUN, Marit Bouwmeester NED and Anne-Marie Rindom DEN all had to count high scores.
Alison Young (20,13,5) despite some high scores only dropped a place to sixth overall.
In the men’s Laser, Jesper Stalheim (2,3,2) of Sweden had a great day to grab the overall lead, nine points ahead of Sam Meech NZL and Matt Wearn AUS.
Britain’s Elliot Hanson (19,21,25) continues to struggle dropping down to 22nd overall.
