London Olympics 2012 Sailing competition, Weymouth - Elliott 6M (Women's Match Racing) class.
The eight remaining teams in Women's Match Racing (Elliott 6M), took to the water today for the Quarter Finals.
Olivia Price, Nina Curtis and Lucinda Whitty (AUS) may have been unbeaten in the previous round robin, but that counts for nothing as they reach this stage of the competition.
First up in the quarter finals it was Price who took on Renee Groeneveld (NED). Price (AUS) and her crew couldn't keep their unbeaten record as the Dutch sailor managed to beat her first up whilst Price took the second race.
Silja Lehtinen (FIN) took on Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) in the second pairing of the day. Tunnicliffe couldn't get ahead in either race though and 2012 World Champion Lehtinen takes a 2-0 lead into tomorrow.
Claire Leroy (FRA) and Tamara Echegoyen (ESP) battled it out in the third pairing and the Spaniard had a fantastic start by securing two wins against the French team. Leroy will have to put the pressure on in the third race to secure a win to keep her medal chances alive.
Finally, Lucy Macgregor (GBR) and Ekaterina Skudina (RUS) ended the day’s races by finishing with one point each.
Racing resumes tomorrow no earlier than 14:00 on the Nothe Course.
