It was another wacky day on the water at French Olympic Week, with storms disrupting weather patterns and creating a moderate, tricky breeze for competitors. That didn't faze US Sailing Team athlete Noah Lyons, who continued his domination over the Last Chance Regatta iQFOiL fleet. Lyons won all five of today's slalom races and will once again enter tomorrow's racing wearing the yellow jersey, with an 18-point lead over second place Lithuania.

Paris 2024 selected athlete Ford McCann is inching closer to country qualification in the ILCA 7 fleet, moving up five places to 7th with a fourth-place finish in today's only race. Markus Edegran had a consistent day in the Men's Formula Kite fleet, scoring a 5, 7, 5. This moves him up to 5th overall and 4th country ranking with two days of racing left. Edegran must finish as one of the top five countries in order to secure his place at Paris 2024.

In the Qualified Nations Regatta, the ILCA 6 women were able to get in their first races of the series. American Christina Sakellaris is in 12th, followed by US Sailing Team athlete Charlotte Rose in 15th and American Lilly Myers in 27th.
