Rogers and Parkin have been in tune all week and are definitely in sync when it comes to the celebration, as Parkin excitedly says, "Eating! We have had to stay light for the boat so we have been dieting pretty hard but now we get to eat whatever we eat. Pancakes, waffles. Whatever we can get our hands on.”
 
In second placed and with a 2-8 for the day, Israel's Ido Bilik and Ofek Shalgi will now have to take on Argentina's third placed sailors, Fausto Peralta and Martin Arroyo Verdi for the silver medal.

No change in the teams sitting within the leaderboard top 10 after today's 2 races, just some shuffling of positions.

The 2015 girl's 420 champions, Poland's Julia Szmit and Hanna Dzik, are in pole position to defend their title and have an eight point lead over Alexandra Stalder and Silvia Speri (ITA) in second. The two teams will fight for gold.

The Italian team will need to be careful though while fighting for gold, they are also at threat of missing out on a medal altogether with a bad result. Olivia Belda and Marina Arndt (BRA), Violette Dorange and Camille Orion (FRA) and Kathryn Hall and Ashton Borcherding (USA) are all in contention for medals and will apply the pressure to the Italians.
