Medal Races - 470, Finn, Laser, Laser Radial

Final day of the Sailing World Cup Series in Hyères with medal racing for the 470, Finn, Laser and Radial classes.

Team GBR picked up a 49er silver and a 49erFX bronze in Saturday's medal racing.

Today GBR had medal chances in the Finn, Radial and women's 470.

But, no medals for the British team competitors. In two classes (Laser/Radial) they had world champions competing but neither made any impression in the medal races.

In the Finn and 470 events it was a similar story, here the top GBR crews were not competing and it showed.

Maybe it was the lighter breeze, always the Achilles heel for the British team, and something that the new Olympic Performance Manager at the RYA is sure to be aware of.

The British Sailing Team will next be in action at the RS:X European Championships and Finn European Championships in Marseilles starting Friday 5 May, and the 470 European Championships in Monaco with racing from 8-13 May.
