August 1, 2012 - Weymouth, England - 49er crew Jesse and Alexander Kirkland (BER) Richard Gladwell

The 49er's took their turn on Portland Harbour today, with two races sailed in moderate breezes. For some of the media it was a chance to see Telefonica skipper, Icker Martinez take the tiller of a 49er after nine months on the wheel of a Volvo Ocean Racer.

Current world champions Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen put one hand on the Gold Medal today, stepping out to a 20 point lead in the Olympic skiff over Peter Burling and Blair Tuke of New Zealand.

Sail-World was on the water to catch the action.
