After a solid day yesterday, the U.S. Men’s 470 struggled again today. In the first race, they appeared to fall victim to a bad shift, winning the pin, leading the fleet out to the right, but rounding the first mark in 20th, while boats that had bailed out to the right after bad starts rounded in the top group. They finished that race in 23rd. In the second race, they didn’t get the start they wanted and bailed out to the right. They faired a little better on the first few legs moving up to 12th, but the wheels came off on the last few legs as they dropped to 15th, then 21st, then 24th at the finish. Those finishes drop them to 19th in the regatta after six races. Making the medal race will require some serious work.
