Strong winds order of the day
A strong southern wind, blowing with the speed of up to 20 knots, enabled the competitors to complete three final races in the men's and two final races in the women's fleets.

In the men's, Australians Wilmot and Page won the first race and came in third in the other two races, which puts them in first place overall. Second race was won by Spaniards Martinez and Cantero, while Britain's Rogers and Glanfield took the win in race number three. Ukraine's Olympic Medallists, Braslavets and Matvienko are in overall second position while Kliger and Gal of Izrael are in third place.
