Aquece Rio – Int'l Sailing Regatta - RS:X medal racers at the ready

'2014 Aquece Rio - RS:X Fleet'    ISAF ©

The first Medal Races will be held at the Aquece Rio – International Sailing Regatta 2014 on Thursday 7 August with the Men’s and Women’s RS:X taking to the Pão de Açucar race track.

Eight races across both fleets have brought the ten racers to the closing stage. Charline Picon (FRA) has a solid lead in the Women’s fleet and should bring home gold whilst Dorian van Rijsselberge (NED) has a narrow advantage of Byron Kokkalanis (GRE) in the Men’s RS:X

The Men’s RS:X will commence racing at 13:00 on the Pão de Açucar course with the Women’s following at 13:40.

Inside Guanabara Bay the breeze will blow from a south easterly direction at 5-10 knots. Outside of the Bay at 3-6 knot breeze will be present. The waves from the previous two days will slowly decrease but they are still present on the race tracks.
