The U.S 49er team of Erik Storck and Trevor Moore had a heartbreaking day in the 49er. In the first race, they had a good start, hit the left corner, which should've paid well, and rounded the first mark in second-to-last. Over the next two legs they ground themselves back into contention, and were set to go through the leeward mark for the last time just outside the top 10. But a bobble during the douse forced them to round up, sail over top of the leeward mark, and then on the way back they capsized. By the time they righted the boat there was nothing left but to sail around the course and hope someone else met a similar fate, which no one did.
