Only the top ten boats from each of the nine fleet racing events proceed through the Medal Race Final tomorrow, with fleets hosting a mix of Olympic medallists and World Champions alongside some less well known names.
Whilst some fleets see the medal contenders pre-determined, with only the colour undecided, other fleets still remain wide open and ready for a nail biting final.
The Medal Races will be brought close to shore tomorrow to maximise the spectator opportunities with courses laid off Neusiedl and Podersdorf. The first warning signal is scheduled for 11.05 when the Men's single-handed dinghy Medal Final in the Laser will get underway at Neusiedl.
Results from the Medal Race will be double points, with letter scores calculated using only the 10 boats in the final. Competitors' final result will be calculated using their results from the gold fleet plus the Medal Race points.
The Team Racing finals will be contested between USA1 and GBR 3 in the challenge for gold and silver, with USA2 and USA3 facing each other in the petty finals for bronze and fourth position.The race schedule is:
