Looks bloody grim. Ainslie leading in the Finn.

12 or so second lead round mark 3. Final downwind leg now.

The wind might be rubbish, but the ten minutes I've now watched, the coverage is rather good.

Looks like he's down to third or fourth- the horror of being able to do so little when micro-puffs come through, even when you're top of the game.

It looks dire doesn't it.

Huge tide and no wind - Ben's dropped right back on the final leg...

It would appear that Ainslie is not out of the lead group - Greece leading

Greeks won the race, Ben Ainslie has finished ninth - make that tenth. He lead by 100 metres at the windward mark but a shift and drop in wind half way down the final run let through 9 other sailors.

Qingdao is going to form!
