Nethra Kumanan finished 39th in Race 6 of the Women's Laser Radial event

11:20 (IST)27 JUL 2021

Nethra crosses the finish line in 39th place, 4 minutes and 39 seconds trailing the race leader. 

She did lose a position after crossing the final mark, but with a few more races to come, there's a good chance for the Indian sailor to gain some vital places in the final standings!

11:04 (IST)27 JUL 2021

Switzerland's Maud Jayet crosses Mark 5 in 52 minutes and 4 seconds, and further takes 1 minute and 28 seconds to cross the finish line!

11:01 (IST)27 JUL 2021

Almost 4 minutes and 45 seconds trailing the leader is Nethra, who is in 38th place at the 4th mark of Race 6. 

10:48 (IST)27 JUL 2021

Nethra loses four more positions at Mark 3, and she's now in 38th place. 

The Indian sailor has struggled quite a bit today, and it will take a herculean effort from her to climb out of the 30s by the end of today's race.

10:39 (IST)27 JUL 2021

Switzerland's Maud Jayet, who is the race leader, has now crossed Mark 3 with a time of 28 minutes and 57 seconds to her name. 

10:37 (IST)27 JUL 2021

A slight improvement as we round Mark 2 now, Nethra gaining two positions to 34th place among the 44 sailors. 

Overall, Nethra is in 32nd position and is in a race against time to push for a spot within the Top 10. Realistically though, that goal seems fairly out of reach. 

10:35 (IST)27 JUL 2021

At Mark 1, Nethra finds herself in 36th place, almost two minutes behind the race leader. Not the most ideal start for the Indian sailor. 

10:33 (IST)27 JUL 2021

We're now live with Race 6 of the Women's Laser Radial sailing event, where Nethra Kumanan will look to make massive gains in position in a bid to strengthen her chances of a Top 20 finish.

That's it from Race 5 of the Women's Laser Radial event! Join us back later today as we bring you the coverage and updates from Race 6. Until then, this is Prasen Moudgal signing off! Cheers!

Nethra Kumanan's final result at the end of Race 5

09:34 (IST)27 JUL 2021

Nethra Kumanan finishes Race 5 in 32nd position. 

Not the greatest of results for the Indian sailor, but she's got a chance at redemption when Race 6 begins later today. 

09:18 (IST)27 JUL 2021

Nethra is now 3 minutes and 21 seconds off the leader, and she's now in 31st place, losing two places ahead of the final mark. 

09:08 (IST)27 JUL 2021

No change in position for Nethra, she's still in 29th place at Mark 3!

Two more marks to go before the turn towards the finish line, Nethra will want to ideally finish close to the early 20s to improve her overall rank. 

09:03 (IST)27 JUL 2021

We're past the second mark too, and Nethra has slipped down a position to 29th. 

She's trailing the race leader by 1 minute and 46 seconds, lot of ground to cover now. 

08:55 (IST)27 JUL 2021

Nethra Kumanan is in 28th as we get past Mark 1! 1 minute 36 seconds off the leader Josefin Olsson. 

08:47 (IST)27 JUL 2021

Sweden's Josefin Olsson in the lead, followed by Norway's Hoest Flem and Hungary's Maria Erdi in 2nd and 3rd place. 

08:46 (IST)27 JUL 2021

Right, we're underway on Day 3 and in Race 5 of the Women's Laser Radial event!
