Sailing: Schedule Falls Behind

Another long day on the water for the remaining Irish sailors with just one race completed in both the Star and Laser Radial classes. With both classes now behind schedule, the full series of ten races may not be completed before the Final Medal Race.
Once again the small sailed Laser Radial failed to complete more than one race before conditions turned against them. Ciara Peelo placed 24th in Race 6, which she now discards as her lowest result. Peelo is 19th overall and 22 points behind the Swiss boat in 10th place.
In the Star class, Peter O'Leary & Stephen Milne placed 10th in Race 4 and lie 11th overall. They are just 1 point outside the top ten boats and just 14 points off the leaders, Poland's Mateusz Kusznierewicz & Dominik Zycki.
