Weymouth and Portland, Great Britain

The Men's 470 sailors will have to wait another night before they can sail their Medal Race after racing was cancelled at 16:30 today.

With little to no breeze forecast, Mother Nature played her part in a frustrating day for sailors and spectators alike.

Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page (AUS) and Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell (GBR) will have to wait to see who comes out on top in their fight for gold. Four points separates them with the Australians on top.

The Men's 470 fleet will race tomorrow at 12:00 local time before the Women's 470 and the Women's Match Racing Semi Finals.

Follow all the action on the ISAF Olympic Live Blog which will bring competition updates and instant reactions to the action on the race course. Fans can check in and ask our media team questions to get the very latest information. The blog will start one hour before racing each and every day of the competition.
