London Olympics: Images of Weymouth - The Stars battle in the Pack

'August 3, 2012 - Weymouth, England - Flavio Marazzi and Enricon de Maria (SUI) sailing the Star class keelboat sail an extreme course and run into the Finn fleet coming the other way on Weymouth Bay.'    Richard Gladwell    Click Here to view large photo

British crew of Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson look set to defend their Olympic Star title after posting a first and second place today.

They enjoy a nine point margin over the second and third placed crews, who will probably now focus on winning the Silver medal instead of chasing the Gold, which seems to be well within the grasp of a very strong British crew.

Sail-World's camera was on Weymouth Bay to catch the big rigs of the two man keelboat as they crashed through big seas and fresh breezes yet again.
