The 49er Medal Race got underway in very gusty conditions with big waves and heavy rain causing low visibility. Almost instantly their was carnage out on the race area.  All competitors capsized and several equipment failures, including 2 broken masts, caused havoc among the competitors.

For a full review of the final race and standings, go to Olympics in the 49er website.
