Only one race could be sailed on the last day of th 470 Junior World Championship in Thessaloniki GRE before the Medal Races in the afternoon. As to expect with the considerable points' gaps between the top teams, no changes happened in the ranking sequence of the first two boats by class.
But it was sheer luck that kept the defending champions Guillaume Pirouelle/Valentin Sipan FRA on top. With a broken spinaker halyard, they finished the Medal Race on the last place, but the second-ranked Malte Winkel/Matti Cipra GER arrived on rank 4 only and could not completely compensate the backlog on the French. With a 3 points' deficit, they remained 2nd. The battle for Bronze wen in favor of Giacomo Ferrari/Giulio Calabro ITA.
Benedetta Di Salle/Alessandra Dubbini ITA remained a class of their own also in the Medal Race, and they earned the Gold Medal with a 39 points' advantage on Maria Bozi/Rafailina Klonaridou GRE. The Bronze Medal went to Jessica Lavery/Megan Brickwood GBR.

The teams had to wait for the seabreeze until 18 h, and there was just time left for one 5-8 kn light-wind race. More Final Races have been scheduled for today to be started in the morning breeze from the shore at 11 a.m., before the Medal Races later in the afternoon. But the top positions in both fleets seem to be quite stable.
Guillaume Pirouelle/Valentin Sipan FRA added another win on their result sheet and have now a 15 points' advance on Malte Winkel/Matti Cipra GER in the 470 men. The Germans are 12 points ahead on the 3rd ranked David Charles Vila/Alex Charles Vila ESP and tactically, the Spanish will rather defend Bronze against Giacomo Ferrari/Giulio Calabro ITA on the 4th place only 4 points behind, as fight for Silver. Close will be the fight for the Medal Race cut as Noguera/ Terrones ESP on rank 9 are only 6 points ahead of Scharnagl/Schulz AUT on rank 12.
Even more clear is the situation in the 470 women with Benedetta Di Salle/Alessandra Dubbini ITA 27 points ahead of Maria Bozi/Rafailina Klonaridou GRE. New on rank 3 are Nadja Horwitz/Sofia Middleton CHI 17 points behind rank 2, but as in the men, danger comes from behind as Jessica Lavery/Megan Brickwood GBR are only 4 points back. The fight for the Medal Race is also very tight with the ranks 9 to 12 separated by 5 points only.

This morning, the fleet had completed a full rounding of the Lake and is now approaching Geneve. The second passage of the Geneva buoy will probably be by noon. Some leader changes happened. On position one during quite some time, Jean-Pascal and Francine Chatagny lost this place with a repair stop in Evian, and Pierre Girod/Edouard Kessi were first for some time. But Loïc Forestier/Bruno Engel are now again the leaders.
