The weather prognosis for when the medal race was on:

From the danish meteorological institute: http://www.dmi.dk/dmi/49er_guld_i_hoej_soe

Start time: 16:35

Duration for the leading boat: 31:31  (add 13:51 for the #8 BRA boat).

Windspeeds (vindhastighed in DK) between 13-17 m/s (25-33 knots). Based on this, should the race probably have been abandoned.

Yeah if it was 25 to 30 knots it should have been abandoned, but like Dylan said, we've raced and medal raced in a lot more so it's not surprising.

And yeah, I think you're right about the masts being faulty.  The one we broke in kiel certainly shouldn't have gone.
