Sailing: Hannah Mills and Saskia Clarke on course

August 5, 2012

Team GB’s sailors continued their bid for more Olympic medals today at Weymouth and Portland as the regatta entered its final few days.

In the women’s 470 Hannah Mills and Saskia Clarke continued their fine form in the regatta as they won their first race, and finished in a solid fifth position to keep them in Gold medal position with five places left.
Bryony Shaw in the women’s RSX has some hard work to do if she is going to match her Bronze medal of four years ago.

Wandsworth born Shaw had a solid day on the water, with finishes of seventh and fifth, but she still finds herself in seventh spot going into the final race, 11 points off of the medal places.

“I’ve done a good job to be in an attacking position,” she said. “I’m 11 points off silver; there’s potential there. If I can attack tomorrow and get to the top five I’ll be happy to finish on a high.”
