Postponement flags got more air time throughout the venue as competitors awaited medal races and finals series racing. The week's top ten 49ers hit the water around 1500 local time and went into sequence around 1645 for the medal race. The 49er FX medal race was canceled due to conditions and time restrictions, locking in their scores from the end of Finals Series racing.

Team Mollerus / MacDiarmid (USST 49er) entered the medal race in 5th overall and placed 5th in the race, just behind team Barrows / Henken (USST 49er) who finished 4th in the race and entered at a 10th place standing. Mollerus / MacDiarmid kept their 5th place standing and Barrows / Henken moved up to 9th overall for the 2023 Sailing World Championships.

Because the 49er FX medal race was canceled, Steph Roble OLY and Maggie Shea OLY (USST) locked in their 7th overall scores as their result for the 2023 Sailing World Championships.

No other racing took place on the North Sea, so Daniela Moroz's standings from yesterday carried through today and officially qualified the United States for a spot in Paris 2024 in the Women's Formula Kite class. This is the second event of the two-part process for Moroz to secure her spot on Team USA after earning US Sailing's individual nomination last month at the Paris 2024 Test Event.

Tomorrow, Moroz will enter Medal Series racing in the Women's Formula Kite, and ILCA 6s and 7s will complete their final day of Finals Series racing, all working to make the top 10 to advance to Sunday's Medal Race. The broadcast for the Women's Formula Kite medal series semi-finals will begin at 0520 EST / 0320 PST, and you can follow along here.
