Five Medal Races on Sunday will draw Hempel World Cup Series Genoa to a close after seven days of sailing in the Italian city.
Attention will now turn to the Men's and Women's 470, Laser, Laser Radial and Finn. Racing is scheduled to start at 10:00 local time with a light 5-6 know northern breeze forecast.
Fernanda Oliveira and Ana Luiza Barbachan (BRA) have wrapped up gold in the Women's 470 so the battle will be for the remaining podium spots. In the Men's 470, it's tight at the top but China's Zangjun Xu and Chao Wang hold a slight advantage.
Pavlos Kontides (CYP) takes a six point lead over Jonatan Vadnai (HUN) into the Medal Race and in the Laser Radial Dongshuang Zhang (CHN) is aiming for her second consecutive Hempel World Cup Series gold medal.
Two points separate Alex Muscat (ESP) and Jorge Zarif (BRA) in the Finn and with a points gap over the third placed Joan Cardona Mendez (ESP), it's likely they'll battle for gold
