At the 470 World Championships, on the penultimate day of racing, Mat Belcher and Malcolm Page (AUS) secured their third successive World Championship title. Their win in race 12 sealed victory for the pair.

In the 470 Women Gold Fleet, teams from China and Poland have qualified their nations to the 2012 Olympic Games, subject to ISAF ratification.

The final two Olympic qualification places in the 470 Women event will be fought out on Saturday’s final race between the teams representing Croatia, Austria and Russia with only four points separating them.
