FIRST SET OF SAILORS BOOK MEDAL RACE PLACES AT WORLD CUP SERIES20 Oct 2017
The line-up for the first set of Live Medal Races, on Saturday 21 October, were confirmed today at the World Cup Series Japan in Gamagori.
The day got off to an all too familiar start, for this week, with the wind once again largely absent. The northerly breeze picked up considerably though, and all eight Olympic sailing events made their way out to race just before midday.
Saturday's Medal Races will be available to watch live across the World Sailing Network.
