Another GB sailing gold

OlympicsSarah Ayton, Sarah Webb and Pippa Wilson have added another gold to the GB pile as they Yngled their way to victory.

The race had been postponed by 24 hours following Saturday’s windless day on the Chinese coast, but Sunday brought 15-knot winds and choppy seas.

The GB trio managed to stay well ahead of their Dutch rivals to finish first in rough conditions and seal overall victory in their class. Sarah Webb was a previous winner of Yngling gold with Ayton and Shirley Robertson in the Athens games.

GB currently head the sailing medals table with two golds and are third overall with 10 gold, 3 silver and 7 bronze medals.
