KC Ganapathy and Varun Thakkar finish Race 9 in 16th place.

A chance to finish in the top 10 is probably now a distant reality, but the fighting spirit from the Indian pair will need to be on display in tomorrow's three races. 

10:41 (IST)30 JUL 2021

A good improvement from the Indian pair, they've climbed up two places to 17th at Mark 3 as we now head towards the finish line!

10:34 (IST)30 JUL 2021

Oh no! The Indian pair has dropped down to last place! Looks like they've had some issues with the boat, and they are in 19th place. 

A lot of work to do if they are to now make their way up the ladder, the difference between them and the race leaders is 2 minutes and 16 seconds. 

10:23 (IST)30 JUL 2021

12th place at Mark 1 for the Indian pair of Ganapathy and Thakkar, they'll want to maintain a position inside the Top 10 to improve their chances of ending in the Top 15 overall.

Race 8 results

09:59 (IST)30 JUL 2021

The Indian pair finish Race 8 just outside the Top 10, in 11th place! 

A costly way to end the race, dropping four places to 11th after crossing Mark 3 in 7th place. However, they are 17th overall, which means with 4 races to go, they still have a chance to finish inside the Top 15. 

09:55 (IST)30 JUL 2021

The Polish pair have now crossed the finish line with a time of 32 minutes and 12 seconds to their name. Spain's Diego le Chever and Lago Marra Lopez in 2nd, followed by Croatia's Sime Fantela and Mihovil Fantela.

09:53 (IST)30 JUL 2021

India now in 7th at Mark 3! Can the young pair hold on or improve their position as we approach the finish line?

09:40 (IST)30 JUL 2021

A two-position drop for India, but they remain within the Top 10. 8th place at Mark 2, 1 minute and 9 seconds behind Poland's pair of Lukasz and Pawel who have jumped into the lead.

09:33 (IST)30 JUL 2021

6th place at Mark 1! The Indian pair making a strong statement at the start, only 16 seconds behind leaders from Germany. 

09:24 (IST)30 JUL 2021

What a start for the Indian pair! They are among the Top 5, at one stage even finding themselves within the Top 3

Men's Skiff 49er Race 7 breakdown

09:11 (IST)30 JUL 2021

Ganapathy and Varun finish Race 7 in 18th place. 

Not the most convincing of results for the young pair, following up on their 7th place finish in Race 6 yesterday. Quite a few races to come though, and they will want to finish as high as possible on the leaderboard. 

09:08 (IST)30 JUL 2021

Germany's race leaders Erik Heil and Thomas Ploessel have crossed the finish line in 31 minutes and 12 seconds!

09:05 (IST)30 JUL 2021

A good recovery from the young pair, they've climbed up two places to take 16th position at Mark 3. 

09:01 (IST)30 JUL 2021

A huge 6-place drop for the Indian pair, they are in 19th place at Mark 2. 

08:51 (IST)30 JUL 2021

At Mark 1, the Indian pair is placed 13th, 44 seconds behind leaders from Germany.
