Britain’s sailors picked up seven race wins at Weymouth and Portland today (Thursday 2 August)
Two wins for the 49er pair of Stevie Morrison and Ben Rhodes was the highlight of the Brits’ day but further race wins for debutants Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell (470 Men), Ben Ainslie (Finn), Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson (Star), the Match Race Girls and Nick Dempsey (RS:X) made it a very profitable day.
The British Match Racing Girls got back to winning ways picking up victory in their one and only race today. Lucy Macgregor, Annie Lush and Kate Macgregor saw off the challenge of Sweden to head into their rest day tomorrow tied fifth overall in the round robin phase of the competition, with a 55% win ratio.
Bryony Shaw vowed to come out fighting after their lay day after finishing the day lying seventh overall.
Racing is scheduled to resume at 12pm tomorrow. The British 470 Women’s duo of Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark are the final class to get their London 2012 campaign underway while the Lasers and Laser Radials return to action after their rest day.
