New Zealand crews in contention for medals

3:18 pm on 7 April 2012

Two New Zealand crews are in contention for medals heading into the final day of the latest World Cup of Sailing in Spain.

Hamish Pepper and Jim Turner are second in the Star class and Dan Slater is 6th in the Finn class.

This regatta is the third of seven ISAF World Cup events for the season, and is the first European regatta of the year for the New Zealand Sailing Team's campaigns toward 2012.

The NZL Sailing Team has qualified for the London 2012 Olympics in all classes except the Star, and that spot will be contended for at this year's Star Class World Championships in May.
