ISAF Sailing World Cup - Going into the Medal race in Hyeres, at the top of the leader board are two antipodean sailors.

Australia and New Zealand are definitely boxing above their weight in the Laser class, they made up half of the medal fleet in Palma Mallorca. This week there are three sailors from Down Under in medal round, six in top 15 in Hyeres.

Andy Maloney (NZL) took the lead today when Tom Burton (AUS) blotted his copybook with a BFD in the final race of the Gold medal series.

Sail-World talked to the Kiwi sailor this morning:

‘Together we have been strong for the past four or five years now. For the whole Olympic program I think New Zealand and Australia were pushing pretty hard with Tom Slingsby and Andrew Murdoch and the rest of us young guys coming through. We learned a lot off those two and we got pushed along. Between the two countries, it’s a pretty good training squad right now.

‘In the summer some of the them come over to New Zealand and some of us will go over to Australia for Sail Melbourne and we will do some training in amongst that time and then also when we are in Europe will work with each other quite a bit before regattas and team up with each other to do some training because we know both countries are quite good and we can learn off each other.

‘Going into Palma I was just a bit rusty with all the big fleet tactics as was expected after not sailing in a big fleet since the Worlds in Oman. Got that out of the way in Palma and at the first half of the event and feeling pretty confident with the big fleet here.

‘Here is Hyeres, going into the medal race in the lead is pretty good. Just focussing on a few specific things and just been managing to stay consistent and get some top ten results which has put me in a good position so far. It’s probably the most consistent I have been at a major Laser event.

‘Next up for us, its two EUROSAF events Garda, then Medemblik and then the Laser Europeans in Croatia.’

Tom Burton - ‘This morning my drop was a six, so the BFD did not hurt too much. I guess it is everyone’s goal to try and not have a bad race and I was pretty disappointed with myself in Palma that I was not as consistent as I wanted to be and this week I have definitely done the opposite. It was what I wanted to do.

‘Last year I didn’t really go to well right at the tail end of regattas. I ended up seeming always leading then falling a little bit short. Not sure if it was because of the format or the way I was sailing but the way I try and take it is it is not really what your best result is it is what you worst result is. That’s my mentality and try and make my worst result not as bad as other peoples.

‘If I make a mistake then it’s just a leg up if I can get back close. I know if I am close then that’s all I want to be.’

And that is where Burton is going into tomorrow’s Hyeres medal race.
