Delta Lloyd Regatta - 470 Women's gold for Broekhuizen and Jongens

by Delta Lloyd Regatta on 25 May 2014
470 Women, medal race - 2014 Delta Lloyd Regatta, day 5 Sander van der Borch © http://www.sandervanderborch.com
Michelle Broekhuizen and Marieke Jongens (NED) had dominated the 470 women all week at the Delta Lloyd Regatta and went into the medal race with an eight point lead from Afrodite Kyranakou and Anneloes van Veen (NED).

The next four boats were within four points of each other, so there was the potential for some big changes, and that is how it played out. Anna Burnet and Flora Stewart (GBR) led for most of the medal race with Linda Fahrni and Maja Siegenthaler (SUI) never far behind. Both Dutch teams however were having problems especially Kyranakou and van Veen, who were near the back. At the finish Burnet and Stewart crossed first to take the bronze, Fahrni and Siegenthaler were second to take the silver and Broekhuizen and Jongens finished fourth to seal the gold. After being in second overall all week, Kyranakou and van Veen could only manage eighth and dropped to fourth.

Broekhuizen and Jongens started a campaign together last year in Medemblik. The Delta Lloyd Regatta 2014 was their sixth regatta in the 470. 'We still have to learn a lot. The fleet here wasn’t that big, but we did well the whole week. We won four races and didn’t want to much risk in the medal race’,’ Jongens said. Broekhuizen, a former Laser-sailer: 'This year we were at the World Cups in Palma and Hyeres. We brought those experiences with us to Medemblik. This is a great moment for us. Our big target is the Worlds in Santander.’’

World Sailing Cup V3 - A Dead Rat in a Shoe or Spring Daffodils?
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues.

She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
