TOKYO 2020 OLYMPIC GAMES – RESERVE DAY 1

The fleet on Day 2

Finn fleet at the half way stage

After six races the Finn fleet is having a day off at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Sailing Competition.

Racing resumes Saturday with early forecasts showing some light winds for the next few days, which could introduce some new elements to the competition.

Here we look at the top 10 at the half way stage. Some are performing well, a few are struggling, while others are ready to pounce.

Giles Scott, GBR – Shaky start on Day 1, but then four race wins in a row. How do the rest respond to that?

Joan Cardona, ESP – Easily the most consistent so far with all races between second and fifth. Stand out peformance so far from the youngest sailor here.

Zsombor Berecz, HUN – Started well, but has struggled in a few races since, though one of the few maintaining any kind of consistency

Nicholas Heiner, NED – High scoring start but then started hitting the front in the last three races

Facundo Olezza, ARG – Great consistency so far and keeping out of trouble

Alican Kaynar, TUR – Dream start, but then has struggled over the next two days and dropped to sixth

Josh Junior, NZL – Not really performing as expected and giving himself a lot to do going into the second half of the event

Jake Lilley, AUS – Always in the chase, but again setting himself an uphill climb when racing resumes

Anders Pedersen, NOR – Some brilliant results mixed with inconsistency

Max Salminen, SWE – Struggling so far and never gives up but has a 22 point deficit to third, so a lot of work to do
