A LACK of wind saw all sailing events at the Tokyo Olympics postponed today.
Six races were scheduled at Enoshima Yacht Harbour but all were delayed and then eventually called off for the day, with no prospect of conditions improving.
Medals had been due to be decided in the women’s and men’s 49er class, but those races will now be held tomorrow, wind permitting.
Dylan Fletcher and Stuart Bithell are well placed to win Britain’s second medal on the water after Emma Wilson’s windsurfing bronze.
They sit second behind New Zealanders Peter Burling and Blair Tuke with only the medal race to go, while Charlotte Dobson and Saskia Tidey sit fifth in the women’s field and have an outside chance of a medal.
The medals are also due to be decided tomorrow in the Finn and Nacra classes, with Britain already assured of podium places in both.
Defending champion Giles Scott leads the Finn standings while, in the Nacra, John Gimson and Anna Burnet look set for silver behind Italian pair Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti.
