The 49er, 49erFX, Laser, Laser Radial and Nacra 17 will conclude their week with their Medal Races. There's some close racing expected with small margins separating many of the competitors.
The Men's and Women's 470 and Finn will conclude their fleet racing with two races apiece. Finn sailors will compete on Escola Naval whilst the Men's and Women's 470 course area has been moved from Ponte to Niteroi due to objects in the water. With six racing areas being used throughout the week the race management team have great flexibility with six racing areas able to be utilised.
