Today is a big day for the 49er class. With one more race, they'll get their drop, which always shakes up the standings a bit. Plus in 20 knots or more these boats are a handful. We saw two of the top teams, Great Britain and Australia take spills yesterday and that was in fairly moderate conditions. If the wind does come in as forecast we could see even more carnage today. While Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen, the reigning world champs and gold medal favorites, have got a 9-point lead on the pack, it's very congested behind them, 9 points separating ninth from silver. I expect to day to be something of a selection day. Some teams will come through unscatched, or less so than others, and the pack of medal contenders will shrink a bit.
