Rio de Janeiro will not make good on its Olympic pledge of slashing the pollution into the Guanabara Bay, where the 2016 games' sailing and wind surfing competitions are to be held. Cut the flow of raw sewage and garbage into the Bay by 80 percent was a key part of the city's Olympic bid document and widely held up as among the most enduring legacies of the games. But with just 1 1/2 years to go before the showcase event, it has become increasingly clear that the target wouldn't be met, Rio's new state Environment Secretary, Andre Correa, admitted. A report with video.
The results of the water quality tests promised by ISAF before the Olympic Test Event have never been published. Were the results so shocking, or are liability questions at stake ? Instead last week, the ISAF President Carlo Croce ITA proudly announced a sponsoring agreement with the Russian Gazprom, not known as a company really concerning about sea ecology ....

The Miami Olympic Classes Regatta, 2nd event of the 2015 ISAF Worldcup, ended yesterday with the Medal Races, sailed in an moderate breeze. Only a few changes on the medal ranks occurred, as the points' differences between the teams were too important in most cases, and a number of winners were even crowned before yesterday's final.
First in the 470 men are Luke Patience/Elliott Willis GBR ahead of Matthew Belcher/Will Ryan and Onan Barreiros/Juan Curbelo ESP.
Jo Aleh/Polly Powrie NZL dominated in the 470 women with Hannah Mills/Saskia Clark GBR and Ai Kondo/Miho Yoshioka JPN taking Silver and Bronze.
Austrian is the victory in the 49ers where Nico Delle-Karth/Nicko Resch AUT celebrated their 3rd Worldcup win. Joel Turner AUS, pairing with Iain Jensen AUS instead of Nathan Outterage AUS is on 2nd. The winners of the Medal Race Jonas Warrer/Anders Thomsen DEN advanced on rank 3.
Outstanding was the performance of Alexandra Maloney/Molly Meech NZL in the 49ersFX never leaving a chance to their opponents. The duel for Silver went in favour of Giulia Conti/Francesca Clapcich ITA first in the Medal Race relegating Martine Grael/Kahena Kunze BRA on rank 3.
Giles Scott GBR is the shining star in the Finn, undefeated for 18 months now ! Ivan Kljakovic CRO and Jake Lilley AUS complete the podium.
Superior also Vittorio Bissarro/Silvia Sicouri ITA in the Nacra 17, winning the Medal Race and taking Gold ahead of Ben Saxton/Nicola Groves GBR and Billy Besson/Marie Riou FRA as 2nd and 3rd.
The closest battle went on in the RS:X male windsurfers, where the Olympic Champion Dorian Van Rijsselberge NED saved 2 points of his advantage to have the upper hand on Thomas Goyard FRA and Byron Kokkalanis GRE.
Bryony Shaw GBR was on top of the RS:X female windsurfers during the whole week and premature winner before the Medal Race already ahead of Liliane De Geus NED and Olga Maslivets RUS.

Light winds affected the program of the last Final Series regattas yesterday, and the 470s and 49ers even returned ashore without valid results.
The medal distribution in the 470 men is practically decided before the Medal Race today as Luke Patience/Elliott Willis GBR will hardly loose their 17 points lead on Matthew Belcher/Will Ryan AUS. Barreiros/Curbelo ESP are 13 points behind the Australians, and the only open question is whether they can defend the Bronze medal against Snow-Hansen/Willcox NZL only two points behind. Premature winners are Jo Aleh/Polly Powrie NZL in the 470 women with a solid 19 points lead on Mills/Clarke GBR. Kondo/Yoshioka JPN with a 14 points' deficit on the Brits will concentrate on the defense of their Bronze medal place.
Smashing 50 points is the advantage of Alexandra Maloney/Molly Meech NZL after the last three - not so good - races in the 49ersFX yesterday. Silver and Bronze will be decided between Giulia Conti/Francesca Clapcich ITA and Martine Grael/Kahena Kunze BRA separated by one point only. In the 49ers, the duel between Delle-Karth/Resch AUT and Joel Turner/Iain Jensen AUS one point back will attract the attention, and also the fight for Bronze with five teams involved - with Paz/Paz ESP on pole position - will be exciting.
Premature winner is also Giles Scott GBR with a 23 points' lead in the Finns, where only Ivan Kljakovic CRO and one point behind Ioannis Mitakis GRE remain serious contenders for Silver or Bronze, as the previous 2nd Jake Lilley AUS had a desaster day with the ranks 10 and 27 after the two races yesterday, dropping on 4th.
Vittorio Bissarro/Silvia Sicouri ITA, by far best of the day yesterday (ranks 1 and 2) in the Nacra 17, are premature winners as well with a 26 points' lead on Ben Saxton/Nicola Groves GBR 2nd on the way to Silver with an 18 points' lead over the best Bronze contender. Jones/Saunders NZL, Mulder/De Koning NED and Besson/Riou FRA separated by 4 points only will fight for Bronze in the double-points-no-discard Medal Race.
The Olympic Champion Dorian Van Rijsselberge NED extended his lead on Thomas Goyard FRA as best in yesterday's two heats (2 and 7) to 10 points in the RS:X male windsurfers. Byron Kokkalanis GRE on 3rd will endeavour to compensate the 4 points separating him from the Silver medal. Another final winner is Byrony Shaw GBR in the RS:X female windsurfers 33 points ahead of Lilian De Geus NED on a safe place for Silver. 14 and more points behind are Flavia Tartaglini ITA, Hei-Man Hayley HKG and Olga Maslivets RUS fighting for Bronze.

Up to 30 kn was the breeze on the first race day of the Miami Olympic Classes Regatta, 2nd event of the ISAF Worldcup 2015, and a lot of capsizes and equipment damages were the consequence ! Nevertheless, the program could be completed in most classes.
Luke Patience/Elliott Willis GBR took the lead in the 470 men ahead of the favorites Belcher/Ryan AUS and Asenati/Hudson RSA. The 470 women are lead by the Olympic Champions Jo Aleh/Polly Powrie NZL in front of Mills/Clarke GBR and Weguelin/McIntyre GBR. Surprise in the 49ers, where no 'big names' but Diego Botin/Iago Lopez ESP are first winning two of the three races ! Alonso/Alonso ESP and Gilmour/Mara AUS follow closely. The 49ersFX were kept ashore after one race, as only 8 of the 40 entrants saw the finish line. Alexandra Maloney/Molly Meech NZL were first ahead of Keijzer/Blom NED and Lloyd/Elks AUS. Giles Scott GBR stood up to his reputation and won both Finn races, with Jake Lilley AUS and Ivan Klijakovic CRO as first persuers. No surprises also in the Nacra 17 with the experienced Gemma Jones/Jason Saunders NZL, Vittorio Bisarro/Silvia Seguri ITA and Billy Besson/Marie Riou FRA in the top positions. The leading trio in the RS:X male windsurfer consists of Louis Giard FRA ahead of Byron Kokkalanis GRE and Nick Dempsey GBR. A new name appears on the RS:X female windsurf rankings with Marion Lepert USA, in front of Flavia Tartaglini ITA and Olga Maslivets RUS.
