Nikolaus Kampelmühler and Thomas Czajka (AUT) took the Men's 470 victory ahead of Japan's Naoki Ichino and Takahashi Hasegawa. In the Women's 470, Gil Cohen and Nao Lasry (ISR) beat Fernanda Oliveria and Ana Luiza Barbachan (BRA) and Amy Seabright and Anna Carpenter (GBR) to the finish.

"It was a very hard race," said Cohen. "We had a few recalls before the race got going. It was very important to remain focused at all times. On the last downwind we had very good speed and we moved up from second to first to take the win."

Racing starts at the earlier time of 10:00 local time on Friday as the Race Committee look to capitalise on a stronger breeze forecast early in the morning.
