WEYMOUTH, England (AP) The men's 470 medals race was postponed Thursday due to lack of wind on the nicest day of the Olympic sailing regatta.
The race was rescheduled for Friday, when the women's 470 medals race will also be held.
The men's 470 fleet never left the boat yard.
The gold medal will go to either Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page of Australia or Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell of Britain. The Australians have 18 points and the British 22.
Australia is trying to win more gold medals than the host country. They lead Britain 2-1.
Sailing for fifth through eighth places in women's match racing also was abandoned.
