The Radial Men sailed one race and the new leader is Martin Lowy BRA ahead of the tied Ricardo Luz BRA and Nik Pletikos SLO on rank 2. Jack Marshall USA, 2nd after day 1, dropped on rank 6 with a 21st race rank yesterday. Only two of the four groups in the huge Laser Radial Youth Boys finished a race.

But down in the rankings follow the best of the non-sailing groups with Henry Marshall USA superior winner of the two races he sailed so far on rank 29. Justin Vittecoq CAN, also not competing, is 94th. The Radial Youth Girls returned ashore with nothing but a few starting attempts. After the only race sailed on the opening day, the leader remains Caroline Rosmo NOR followed by Alexandra Dahlberg FIN and Zoe Thomson AUS. Hallie Schiffman USA is 4th.
