The normally very efficient system that brings the World Cup results seems to have failed at a crucial moment.
The issue seems to be an inability to calculate the overall totals and sort them into leader order.
Interestingly, the workaround that World Sailing has put in place is to direct browsers to the official Rio results site.
Here, too, there are issues as this site does not show how discards figure in the overall total.
However, Afloat.ie has discerned that the World Sailing system seems to be operational again and can be accessed HERE.
Users are advised to save that link, as clicking on the other hyperlinks on this page may take you to the official Rio 2016 results site.
Protest decisions are also available through the same link. However, World Sailing fails to indicate which fleet the protest applies to, so there is a bit of guesswork involved in working out which event is affected by the protest.
