Team NZ 4th in Marseill

8:32 am on 21 June 2010

Team New Zealand has finished 4th at the Marseille MedCup yachting regatta after no racing was possible over the last 2 days.

The American Quantum Racing won the regatta.

Their win halts Team New Zealand's run at five successive regattas which they set off in Marseille last year.

Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker says after being 9th after the first day they needed the rest of the event to claw their way back unfortunetly they ran out of races so didn't get the chance.

The next regatta is a Barcelona, Spain at the end of July.
