NZ sailors hunt for medals in the Netherlands

2:43 pm on 25 May 2013

4 New Zealand crews will race for medals tonight at the latest European sailing regatta in the Netherlands.

The Olympic 470 crew of Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie led after the preliminary rounds, Andy Maloney was 2nd and Sam Meech 5th in the Laser and Paul Snow-Hansen and Daniel Willox were 4th in the men's 470.

Only the top six in each class will sail the all important last race of the regatta, where each boat carries forward only their position in the fleet and any leading margins built over four days of racing are wiped.
