Delta Lloyd Regatta - Kiwi claims surprise win in the Laser class

'Laser medal race - 2014 Delta Lloyd Regatta, day 5'    Guilain Grenier    Click Here to view large photo

Sam Meech (NZL) took a surprise win in the Laser fleet at the Delta Lloyd Regatta after overcoming the leader all week, Nicholas Heiner (NZL). Heiner started the day as favourite with a seven point lead over Meech, but it all went wrong at the start.

Third placed Andy Malony (NZL) was 15 points behind Heiner, with three more boats within two points, so there was always going to be two races going on in the Laser fleet. Heiner started badly and when the wind decreased slightly had trouble catching up. Meech then got the better of Heiner and pushed him the wrong way, and then stayed ahead to snatch the gold medal. Heiner eventually finished last to take the silver while Mike Bullot (NZL), who started the day in fifth, won the race to take the bronze by two points.
