    SAILING (13:00-13:30): Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell, 470 class medal race

    Great Britain's Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell are guaranteed at least silver in sailing's 470 class on Thursday but could go one better if the otherwise-dominant Australian crew of Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page have an off-day. Realistically, nothing short of a win in the medal race can improve GB's standing. Even then, it is in the hands of the Australians. But an exciting climax and a medal are both promised.

    There's no wind in Weymouth, so they've delayed the race for a while. It might've been fun to watch them paddling to the finish with their hands, but apparently the officials haven't gone for that option.

    SAILING (09:00-22:45): Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell, men's 470; Saskia Clark and Hannah Mills, women's 470

    Patience and Bithell are guaranteed silver and hope to overhaul Australia's Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page for gold in the medal race (12:00), which was postponed on Thursday because of light winds. That sets up a potential day of double gold for Britain's sailors, with Saskia Clark and Hannah Mills going into the medal race (13:00) of the women's 470 level at the top of the standings with New Zealand's Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie

    Let's hope it's a bit windier out there today!
