The top ten have now been made for the medal race tomorrow, but who is on for the final day? Matt Sheahan and Steve Ancsell review Day 5
The pressure was on. The last day of qualifying for the medal races on Saturday where just the top 10 in each class go forward to the final day of racing. For some like the British team there was additional pressure as the top British teams in each class will go forward to the Olympic test event in August taking them a step closer to selection for 2012. For many in this predicament, winning at Sail for Gold means qualification for the team too. Little surprise then that today’s racing had a more intense feel about it.
So who made it through to the final day and where will the sparks fly in Saturday’s racing? Matt and Steve assess the day.
