10:09 (IST)29 JUL 2021

The Indian pair finish 7th in Race 6 of the Men's Skiff 49ers event! What a performance this has been from the duo, who looked all at sea in the previous few races but have bounced back in dominating style!

They were also benefactors from the Switzerland pair of Sebastian Schneiter/Lucien Cujean (6th) and the Portugal duo of Jorge Lima/Jose Costa (7th) being disqualified, which eventually helped the Indians to 7th!

10:08 (IST)29 JUL 2021

The duo has fallen off a few places but are still within the Top 10, 9th place after Mark 3 as they head towards the finish line. 

10:07 (IST)29 JUL 2021

Even better at Mark 2! Ganapathy and Thakkar climb one position to 4th spot as they round Mark 2, only 33 seconds behind Brazil's pair of Marco Grael and Gabriel Borges. 

10:07 (IST)29 JUL 2021

What a start for the young pair, 5th place at Mark 1, and just 27 seconds behind the race leaders!
