- Final day of qualification for the 10 boat cutoff for (most) medal race fleets.
From the early results the British team have qualified for the Medal races in the Nacra17, Radial, Laser, 470 and both Kite events.
This will involve John Gimson and Anna Burnet in the Nacra 17, presently in second place behind early gold medal winners Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti ITA.
In the very tight men’s ILCA7 Laser medal race, Michael Beckett and Elliott Hanson will face Philipp Buhl GER and Pavlos Kontidos CYP where just three points cover them in the battle for the medals.
In the women’s ILCA6 Radial, Hannah Snellgrove starts in fifth place with the outside chance of making the podium, where Agata Barwinska POL is already in gold position.
Big effort by Vita Heathcote and Ryan Orr with a second place finish to put them into the 470 medal race.
470 leaders are Anton Dahlberg and Lovisa Karlsson SWE with second Hippolyte Marchetti and Aloise Retornaz FRA.
In the men’s 49er, leader is Dominik Buksak and Szymon Wierzbicki POL from Nevin Snow and Maximiliano Agnese USA. No GBR qualifier,
