A great result for the Australian Sailing Team and Squad at Delta Lloyd Regatta. Now all we need is wins in Laser, 49er, 470's in Weymouth and a sprinkling of silver and bronzes across the other classes and then duplicate it at the same venue in a little over a year and that would be a pretty fair result.

Plenty of interesting news ....
