A summary of how the Brits got on today and how they lie overall
Shirley and her crew spend the day with the media and for many others it’s a lay day, but the Lasers, Europes, boards and 49ers were out sailing.
Yngling – Gold medal
Finn – Currently Silver, Gold possible
Ben Ainslie – A 2nd in the first race and a convincing win in the second extends Ben’s lead but not enough to guarantee a Gold.
470 Men – Currently Silver, Gold possible
Nick Rogers and Jo Glanfield – No racing today but a big day tomorrow. With one race to go they need to beat the American’s with two boats in between.
470 Women – Currently 7th overall
Christina Bassadone and Katherine Hopson – No racing today and ther last race tomorrow.
49er – Currently 3rd overall
Chris Draper and Simon Hiscocks – An 8th, a 1st and a 13th pushes them up the overall rankings
Laser – Currently 4th overall
Paul Goodison – Tantalisingly close after an 8th and a 7th. All to play for in just one remaining race.

Men’s Windsurfer – 6th overall
Nick Dempsey – A 2nd and a 9th today
