Britain's Olympic sailing hopefuls make good progress in Medemblik

Britain’s Olympic sailing hopefuls made a strong start at the newly-named Breitling Regatta (formerly the Holland Regatta) in Medemblik on Wednesday (23 May), with Penny Clark amongst the Skandia Team GBR sailors making an early mark.

The International Regatta Centre in Medemblik may have been bathed in sunshine for this first day of racing at this ISAF Grade 1 event, but light winds prevailed across the Ijsselmeer, leading to a slow start for more than 730 sailors competing here in Holland.

In the women’s single-handed Laser Radial class, Penny Clark made the most of the light wind conditions to post a 2,1,11 which sees her into third place, with Charlotte Dobson not far behind in fifth.

After finishing 12th in the first Yngling race of the regatta, Sarah Ayton, Sarah Webb and Pippa Wilson went on to cross in sixth and third in the last two races of the day to put them into fourth overall, while Shirley Robertson, Annie Lush and Lucy Macgregor had a disappointing first day with a black flag in the second race sandwiched by results of 24 and 20 in the first and third races. They’re currently in 28th overall.


Christina Bassadone and Saskia Clark posted consistent results of 9,11 in the 470 women’s fleet to see them in seventh place.

Results from the Laser and Tornado classes are not yet published at the time of publication.

Racing at the Breitling Regatta continues through until Sunday 27 May – for more news and information, visit www.skandiateamgbr.com/events/hollandreg
