Brits Dominate


sailors are following up their Olympic success in the SB3 Laser Worlds,
in Ireland, and currently hold all three podium positions. However,
overnight leaders, Tim & Sue Fells, fell from grace today after
an uncharacteristic 20th place dropped them to third overall, with compatriot
Craig Burlton leap frogging them into the lead and Mark Richards moving
into the silver medal position.

Fells said the sunny, but tactically testing conditions, on the bay
meant there was a hair’s breadth of judgement between greatness
and the gutter. “It was switching probably 40/50 degrees without
any particularly obvious pattern, so it was very easy to get on the
wrong side of the track and be totally buried.” he said. “The
real challenge was just consistency today.” This pic from Gareth
