With the best breeze forecasted for the morning, race committees called competitors to the North Sea for an early start to day five of the 2023 Sailing World Championships.

Early birds got the worm and the breeze unfortunately died off as the day went on, stunting the day's race plan in the ILCA 6 fleet.

  • Racing today: ILCA 6 & 7, 470, 49er, 49er FX, M/W iQFOil, M/W Kite, 2.4m
  • Off today: Nacra 17, M/W Hansa 303
  • Tomorrow's medal race: Para Classes, including USA's Betsy Alison
US Sailing Team's Steph Roble, OLY and Maggie Shea, OLY ended their day with a race win in the 49er FX gold fleet, bringing their bullet count to three for the event and rocketing them to third overall going into day six. Andrew Mollerus and Ian MacDiarmid (USST) also ended on a high note in 49er gold with a race win and advanced to 6th place overall with 5th only three points away. Noah Runciman scored all top-10 finishes in the day's four races, catapulting him seven places up the leaderboard to 19th overall going into the final day of the qualifying series.

Ian Barrows and Hans Henken (USST) moved into 11th overall in the 49er gold fleet and have their sights set on clearing 10th on the last day of finals racing to qualify for the medal race on August 18th. Louisa Nordstrom and Trevor Bornarth jumped an impressive eight places into 17th overall in the Mixed 470 gold fleet with 16th only three points ahead.

Currently leading the Women's Hansa 303 fleet by one point, Betsy Alison will take the water for the medal race in a challenge for the top of the podium with Poland's Olga Gornas-Grudzien. A broad point spread to third place means first and second are guaranteed to USA and Poland, and fans back home will be treated to live broadcast of the final race at 1500 local time, 0900 ET / 0600 PT to watch it all play out.
