Day 8: Team Canada FX sailing - Rio 2016

Monday, August 15, 2016 – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Day 8 of Olympic sailing competition produced some nice breeze on the outside course for the 49erFX however it was a long day of waiting for the rest of the fleets, including CAN 470 Saunders team, with too much breeze filling in towards the end of the day, cancelling all remaining race opportunities, including medal races in Laser and Radial.

Erin Rafuse and Dannie Boyd sailed three races in 12kt breeze posting 18, 17, 12. “We struggled on our down winds today. We kept losing boats on our downwind. We’ve got three races scheduled for tomorrow we will look to continue our good starts and hopefully put up 3 good scores.
Erin and Dannie are currently 15th overall.

No other fleets raced today due to weather conditions thus it will be a packed schedule tomorrow for 470 Men and 49er FX. Medal racing will take place for Laser, Radial, Finn and Nacra.
