ISAF SWC Hyeres - The Tale of three B's plus more news from Australia

Mat Belcher and Will Ryan - 2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres  Australian Sailing Team
ISAF Sailing World Cup 2014 Hyeres Medal Races yesterday for Australia's Rio Olympic campaigners was largely the tale of three B's: Burton, Belcher and Bundock.

First the Busy B's

Mat Belcher and Will Ryan, the dominant 470 pairing sailed two bullets yesterday. Belcher has been on the podium in every regatta since early 2011 and Hyeres was destined to be another notch in the belt.

but there was much more adventure for Burton and Bundock.

Now the tale of the Young B

Australian' Tom Burton who has taken the mantle from Tom Slingsby in the Laser class, spent much of the last year with ISAF Ranking One had slipped to second after a fourth place at the Sailing World Cup in Miami.

In the medal race he did not have the greater of first beats, he was on the wrong side of the first shift and rounded the top mark just behind the main bunch.

Burton tells the story to Sail-World.com. Read more inside...

Bundock and Curtis, Nacra 17   Thom Touw ©

Now to the old B.

42 year Darren Bundock one of the newest sailors to start an Olympic Nacra 17 campaign and every regatta it seems he is reminding his fellow competitors that 14 multihull world titles add up to serious talent and serious experience.

Bundock and Curtis had a handy lead going into the Medal race but then disaster struck as Bundy explained to us yesterday. Check out the details below.
