The British sailor placed 10th in the double point medal race, ending one place behind Berecz.

Olympic champions Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze remain in control of the 49erFX event at the European Championships at Weymouth in England.

The Brazilian duo had a mixed penultimate day of the Championships, with 11th and 21st place finishes.

The latter score was discarded from their total score to date, leaving the pairing heading into tomorrow’s medal race on 56 points.
