NZ Out Of Medals At French Regatta

Wellington, May 1 NZPA - New Zealand sailors finished medal-less at the French Olympic Sailing Week regatta which finished off Hyeres this morning (NZT).

Sara Winther finished fifth out of 80 sailors in the women's Laser Radial class while Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie were sixth out of 44 in the women's 470 division.

The final day of the regatta, like the previous five, tested sailors with light and shifty winds. Only the top-10 medal races were sailed, with the remaining New Zealand sailors' final positions determined on the penultimate day of the regatta.

In the medal race, Winther crossed the line sixth, helping her to a personal best in a major European Olympic class regatta.

Aleh and Powrie were third in their medal race to improve one place overall and continued the theme of the pair being well inside the top 10 since they launched their Olympic 470 campaign last year.

This year they have been fifth at Princess Sofia Regatta in Spain in March, and third at International 470 Spring Cup Regatta in Marseille last month.
