Tuesday is the final day of fleet racing for the Nacra 17, 49er, 49erFX and the two RS:X fleets at Ready Steady Tokyo in Enoshima.
These five classes will complete their fleet racing and the top 10 of each will qualify for their medal races on Wednesday.
Conditions were south-southwesterly winds between 10-14 knots, gusting 18 knots, decreasing slightly to around 10 knots, with heavy rain and thunderstorms likely. Wave height shouldn’t reach over 1m today.
Not a good day for Britain’s 470 World champions, Hannah Mills and Eilidh Mcintyre, who had a 14 and 9, but saved by a DSQ for leaders Ai Yoshida and Miho Yoshioka JPN, who drop to third.
New leaders are Camille Lecointra and Aloise Retornaz FRA with Mills and Mcintyre second.
Charlotte Dobson and Saskia Tidey (15,13,6) go into 49erFX medal race with a one point advantage ahead of Martina Grael and Kahena Kunze BRA (8,7,7).
John Gimson and Anna Burnet (8,1,4) take second place going into Wednesday’s Nacra 17 medal race. Ben Saxton and Nicola Boniface (4,8,1) are in sixth place. Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti ITA (6,5,11) lead by two points.
Emma Wilson (11,13,1,2) moves into fourth place for the women’s RS:X medal race, but ten points off the podium.
While in the men’s RS:X, Tom Squires (20,2,4) goes into the medal race in third place, in a very tight leaderboard.
In the 49er Dylan Fletcher and Stu Bithell (3,3,1) had their best day and take 3rd place going into the medal race Wednesday.
Pete Burling and Blair Tuke (4,1,7) NZL now lead the 49er by 13 points from Pawel Koldzinski and Lukasz Przybytek POL.
Luke Patience and Chris Grube put themselves into the men’s 470 top 10 with their best day so far, a 9 and 2, to place eighth overall, with two races to go.
In the Radial, Alison Young (10,1) takes her first race win here and is fourth overall.
Giles Scott has two races left to get his challenge for the gold back on track. He is in second place, but 16 points behind Zsombor Berecz HUN.
