All others were sent back ashore, as the shifts were too extreme. No ranking therefore on the event website, but a daily report. The wind forecast for today is not very promising.

Erik Heil/Thomas Plössel GER won Bronze at the Rio Test Event concluded last week. Back home in Germany, infections appeared on legs and hips, and he had to be hospitalized. For months, the disastrous water quality of Guanabara Bay with millionfold violation of bacteriums and viruses limits has been critized. A report in yacht.de.
ISAF, responsible for the sport of sailing at the Olympic Games on behalf of the IOC, does not seem to initiate the necessary steps to dislocate Olympic sailing to a safe place such as Buzios, 150 km North of Rio, a proven yacht racing venue, to safeguard the health of the athletes. Next will probably be claims and legal actions !

Peter Sowrey, the new CEO of ISAF, threatened Saturday to move all Olympic sailing events out of polluted Guanabara Bay to the Atlantic Ocean unless the water is cleaner and floating garbage is removed for next year's Rio Games. Rubbish flowed into the bay despite little rain in Rio in recent weeks, probably the best weather officials could want. An an analysis published July 30 showed dangerously high levels of viruses and bacteriums from human sewage at all Rio Olympic water venues for sailing, rowing, canoeing, triathlon and distance swimming. A press article by AP.
However, the water quality offshore is well above all limits too, and the Olympic Harbour at the Marina di Gloria is in one of the most polluted areas of Guaranaba-Bay. Here some measurement values.
16 sickness cases have been reported after the 2015 Rowing Test Event in Rio, infects that are not harmless, as the case of a swimmer at the PanAm-Games 2007 proofs. She returned sick for the rest of her life with a life-altering illness, later diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. See statement in an article of swimswam.
The only effective solution is the dislocation of the Olympic Sailing Event 2016 to Buzios, a dream destination, 100 miles North of Rio, as the multiple Olympic medalist Lars Grael BRA, supported by ISAF past-President Paul Henderson CAN, proposed over a year ago.
