Carolina João is the best Portuguese, in 29th place, followed by Mafalda Pires de Lima (42nd), Leonor Dutra (83rd) and Federica Franchi (86th), with a total of 89 sailors.

The other women's spot for Tokyo remains in the hands of Israeli sailor Shai Kakon, who despite being one of the youngest athletes in the race continues to register a good performance, maintaining the 5th place in the overall classification.
