Wilmot and Malcolm Page, haven’t even done the medal race and have secured
a gold medal in the 470 class today at 16:35 hours China time. They
finished today on 22 points ahead of Dutch rivals Sven and Calle Coster,
who are on 54 points. Followed by Nicolas Charbonnier and Olivier Bausset
who are on 56 points. The 470 men had to do 3 races today to stay on
target for a medal race on Monday. The Aussies had their worst race
of the regatta in race 8 coming in 16th then backed up with a 3rd and
a 10th to consistently pace away from the opposition. They commented
that the strategy was to just get top ten finishes and keep a clear
head through out the regatta. And this winning equation has paid off.
The Aussie Women’s team of Elise Rechichi and Tessa Parkinson are also
in a commanding position 18 points in front of another dutch team of
Marcelien De Konig and Lobke Berkhout. – David Bell.
