First the alerting news about the heavily polluted water, and now another threat.
World Sailing stated last autumn, that racing in the Guanabara Bay in Rio will depend on successful cleaning actions with satisfactory results concerning the water quality. Yesterday, the Notice of Race was published without any clause regarding this important subject. The report with the detailed Notice of Race.
Also yesterday, the World Health Organisation Geneva declared, that the Zika virus is a global emergency, and Brazil urged pregnant women to avoid the Olympics. The virus transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which also spreads dengue fever, and which is found everywhere in the Americas except Canada and Chile is not fatal. But there is currently no specific treatment for the virus, which causes flu-like symptoms and a rash.
Then comes the real questions, should the Games actually be held in Rio or should there be an emergency relocation? An article in SailWorld.

The winners in the 49ersFX are known prematurely, as the leading lexandra Maloney/Molly Meech NZL have a 30 points' advance on Lisa Ericson/Hanna Klinga SWE.

Sylvan/Anjemark SWE not far behind on 4th could intervene for the Bronze Medal.
Fully open is the situation in the 470 men where the frist three teams are closely together, and whoever is ahead of the others in the Medal Race, will be ahead overall. For the moment, Barreiros/Curbelo ESP is 1 point in front of McNay/Hughes USA, who are 1 point ahead of Mantis/Kagialis GRE.

The lead in the Finns has changed again with Jorge Zarif BRA now on first, but Jonas Hoegh-Christensen DEN is only 2 points back, and even Caleb Paine USA 6 points behind has still a chance overall. In the Nacras 17 are Jason Waterhouse/Lisa Darmanin AUS on top with Matias Bühler/Nathalie Brugger SUI new on rank 2 6 points back.

After only 5 months in charge, the (then) ISAF CEO Peter Sowery GBR left the office in last autumn. In an interview with Associate Press, Sowery gives his view on the case. He was fired, as he firmly proposed to remove the Olympic Sailing competition from the heavily polluted Guanabara-Bucht to Buzios, 150 km North of Rio. (This alternative had been proposed by Brazilian Oiympians supported by the former ISAF President Paul Henderson months ago, but ISAF, as in the Malaysia Israeli Visa issue, did not act). ISAF President Carlo Croce ITA and his Executive Committee disliked Sowrey's strong position in this matter and fired him.
