so, that was all a bit disappointing - so close but so far.

Should our girls have let the Russian lead around the top mark?  Or was there another tactic they could have tried?

Protest was due to be heard at 18.00 but no result posted by ISAF yet, it's Rule C10 against Race Committee which I think is to do with scoring.

The Race Committee scored RUS as winner.

In the very last race for the GBR team, they led around the top mark in light & puffy conditions and went for a crash gybe-set whilst the Russians went for a smooth bear-away set and glided into a 4 boat-length lead - held to the finish. That was the game-over moment not the contentious finish in the race before
