As things settle down in Sandringham, the RS:X athletes in Sorrento look forward to tomorrow's final day of racing. Though the windsurfers also faced similar light and shifty conditions to the Radial athletes, they managed to get all three races in.

As one of the tallest athletes in the Men's fleet, Geronimo Nores' (Miami Beach, Fla.) may have had a tougher time in the light-air races, but his coach Yaniv Meir (ISR), is still pleased with his performance today.

"In the morning we realized it's a hard condition since he's one of the bigger sailors in the fleet, but he actually performed really well," said Meir. "His first beats were really good, he was totally ready for the day despite the wind, and he put in 100% on the water."

Nores' overall solid performance this week has also guaranteed him a spot on the podium among the competitors under the age of 21. Ranked 33rd overall, Nores is guaranteed the U21 bronze and he has a shot at the silver tomorrow.

Just behind Nores in the standings is U.S. Men's RS:X athlete Pedro Pascual (West Palm Beach, Fla.), currently ranked 34th. In the Women's fleet, Farrah Hall (Annapolis, Md.) currently stands 35th.

Tomorrow, the competitors will have one more day of racing to solidify their spots in the overall standings. Three final races are scheduled to begin at 1:00 p.m., local time. After the first two races, the top-ten athletes in each fleet will compete in a medal race while the remaining competitors close the event with a final fleet race.

Tomorrow will also mark the end of the 2020 U.S. RS:X Olympic trials and two athletes will have officially qualified to Team USA for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
