The teams had to wait for the seabreeze until 18 h, and there was just time left for one 5-8 kn light-wind race. More Final Races have been scheduled for today to be started in the morning breeze from the shore at 11 a.m., before the Medal Races later in the afternoon. But the top positions in both fleets seem to be quite stable.
Guillaume Pirouelle/Valentin Sipan FRA added another win on their result sheet and have now a 15 points' advance on Malte Winkel/Matti Cipra GER in the 470 men. The Germans are 12 points ahead on the 3rd ranked David Charles Vila/Alex Charles Vila ESP and tactically, the Spanish will rather defend Bronze against Giacomo Ferrari/Giulio Calabro ITA on the 4th place only 4 points behind, as fight for Silver. Close will be the fight for the Medal Race cut as Noguera/ Terrones ESP on rank 9 are only 6 points ahead of Scharnagl/Schulz AUT on rank 12. Russell Clarida/Henry Fernberger USA are on the position 22.
Even more clear is the situation in the 470 women with Benedetta Di Salle/Alessandra Dubbini ITA 27 points ahead of Maria Bozi/Rafailina Klonaridou GRE. New on rank 3 are Nadja Horwitz/Sofia Middleton CHI 17 points behind rank 2, but as in the men, danger comes from behind as Jessica Lavery/Megan Brickwood GBR are only 4 points back. The fight for the Medal Race is also very tight with the ranks 9 to 12 separated by 5 points only. Allie Surrette/Ali Ten Hove CAN are on the 28th place.
All results. The event website will be updated during thei morning with the daily report and the video of day 5. The start to the Medal Race is scheduled for 15 h. Check the live ticker to remain updated during the day.
