Chris Bouzaid has been called the father of New Zealand international keelboat yachting – which inspired Sir Peter Blake and Grant Dalton.

He was the first non-Australian to win the Sydney-Hobart race. First non-European to win the One Ton Cup which, at the time, was only after the America’s Cup in terms of importance. He was part of the New Zealand team that finished 1, 2, 3 in the 1971 Sydney-Hobart race, something never done before, and which saw New Zealand win the Southern Cross Cup.

These achievements saw Chris named New Zealand Sportsman of the Year in 1969, and he was also inducted into the New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame, received an MBE and listed as one of the New Zealand Sportsmen of the Year. 20th century.

But Chris sees himself more as a businessman than a great boater and also ran one of the largest sailmaking companies in the world. It’s something he was immersed in early in life, taking over his father’s business with his brother as a teenager, but he recognized the importance of marketing and has done a lot through his yachting exploits.

In this Broad Reach Radio podcast, Michael Brown of Yachting NZ, walks through much of Chris Bouzaid’s career on and off the water, and the role he played in arousing the passion for New Zealand. Zealand for international yachting. It tells the story of the day he shared the front page with the moon landing; how he won 121 races with his famous Rainbow II yacht; the impact of hosting the 1971 One Ton Cup on this country; and the embarrassing, yet frightening, story of his worst erasure ever.

Tokyo 2020 stars Robert Dickson and Sean Widdlove of Howth suddenly competed with news of a rival campaign from Cork Harbor for Paris 2024 in the men’s 49er single scull dinghy.

The two young members of the Royal Cork Yacht Club and the UCC Sailing Club, and alumni of Presentation Brothers College, Séafra Guilfoyle (25) and Johnny Durcan (21) have already started a rigorous training program with the team. Ireland for the Olympic qualifiers, which begin in August 2023.

Séafra Guilfoyle, from Myrtleville, will be at the helm, at the helm of 2-place. The UCC economics student has recent experience competing for a spot at Tokyo 2020 with two-time Olympian Ryan Seaton from Belfast Lough where they missed out on qualifying. It is his dream to represent Ireland at the Olympics and Seafra says he is “determined to reach Paris 2024”.

Séafra and Johnny started sailing at the age of 7 and 8 respectively and were very successful at the youth level. Séafra represented Ireland each year from the age of 12 to 18, winning several national championships and medalists at the world championships and taking silver at the youth world championships in 2014.

Johnny represented Ireland on the international stage from the age of 11. He was ranked first in Optimist sailing at the age of 13, national laser champion at 14, European junior 29er champion at 15 and winner of the European and Irish championships. at 16 years old.

Séafra says he is proud to partner with Johnny as he is not only a fantastic athlete but an “inspiration”, following his near-death experience when his boat capsized at the 29er World Championship in Long Beach , California, in 2017. It was only the swift action of his fellow competitors that saved his life. “Johnny was as comfortable sailing as he was walking. He was one of the favorites for the Laser Radial Worlds that year. It took him a while to get back on the water after that, but not only did he get back on his feet, he excelled and came back to the top of his game and is now set to embark on an Olympic campaign.

Their rigorous training program demonstrates this commitment. Séafra and Johnny have been training together almost seven days a week since May 2021, mainly in Dublin with the Irish squad, their coach and coaches, and back at Royal Cork.

Guilfoyle Durcan Sailing, as it’s now known, will be competing in her first competitive race this winter when she heads to Oman for the world championships.

They believe their competitive edge at the Olympics will be their youth, their long-standing friendship having climbed the ranks of sailing together, their geographic proximity to each other, Johnny’s training experience with Annalize Murphy and the fact that Seafra already has four and a half years of experience leading an Olympic campaign behind him.

“The fact that we live so close to each other when we’re both at home makes it easier to train outside of the official Irish squad training schedule,” explains Johnny. “We are both young and at the top of our game, and Seafra brings a lot of experience and learning from his last campaign.”

Colin Morehead, Admiral of the Royal Cork Yacht Club, said: “We are incredibly proud of these two talented and ambitious athletes, who are one of the youngest Irish senior teams to compete for the 49er Olympics.

86 exceptional teams from 18 countries have registered for the 2021 World All-Star Championship in the iconic sailing capital, Kiel, Germany, which will take place September 4-11 during the Kieler Woche, just like in Olympic times . Most of these teams will chase defending title holders Mateusz Kusznierewicz (POL) with the five-time winning crew Bruno Prada (BRA), here to defend it and propel Prada into the Olympia of the Star sailors. He would be the first – and the only one – to achieve the incredible record of winning six World All-Star titles.

YCCS / Studio Borlenghi

Mateusz Kusznierewicz, who initially enjoyed success with the Finn and proved his talent and skills with a gold and bronze medal at the Olympics and two Gold Cup titles, switched to the doubles keelboat to win the World Championship in 2008 and 2019. As the Star Worlds 2020 have been canceled, the Sailor of the Year 1999 will now try to keep his hands on the prestigious trophy in Kiel. The 46-year-old has already proven that he still has it with the excellent Bruno Prada crew during the traditional Bacadi Cup in Miami. With eight wins in the eight races, the duo dominated the event and became the first duo to win the competition in one fell swoop since its inception in 1927. Mateusz and Bruno have won the Kieler Woche several times each, they are therefore quite familiar with the spot, which makes it the team to beat.

The favorites list at 99e The Star Class World Championships in Kiel are long. In addition to the defenders, the reigning European champions and double Olympian Enrico Chieffi with Ferdinando Colaninno (Italy), and the vice-European champions Hubert Merklebach, class president, with Kilian Weise (GER), are here with goals clear fixed in their minds, the golden star on their mainsail. But also, the triple vice-world champion Diego Negri (ITA) with the 2014 world champion Frithjof Kleen (GER); two-time Finnish Olympian Jake Lilley (AUS); five-time European laser champion and two-time Olympic silver medalist Tonci Stipanovic (CRO); Eivind Melleby (NOR), Star World Champion 2017, Olympian and Volvo Ocean Race finalist; and of course, the five-time Olympian, bronze medalist in Athens in Star and seven-time Finnish and Star world champion, Xavier Rohart (FRA), will all be on the starting line on Monday 6 September.e.

YCCS / Studio Borlenghi

The official start of the World Championships will take place at the Opening Ceremony on Sunday at 6.30 p.m. local time after the registration and weigh-in of the teams has been completed. Then the first starting signal will sound at 1:00 p.m. on Monday after the skippers’ meeting. Six races are scheduled, one per day as is the century-old tradition, until Saturday September 11e, when the medals will be awarded.

The strong conditions of the Costa del Solent hosted the 19 One Design Hunter Sonatas who made the trip to the Island Sailing Club in Cowes to join the National Fleet of 12 Solids for the 2020 Sonata National Championships carried over supported by Goodall Roofing in their first back in the Solent for 15 years. .

With the event starting on Sunday, visiting boats had time to travel and take to the water on the mainland (thanks to Drivers Wharf for their support in setting up and safely exiting all boats on time). Special mention to Tom White who sailed 140 nm from Mevagissey to attend the event!

When Sunday arrived, the fleet headed for the Solent at 25-32 knots southwest in a regatta over the choppy waters of Bramble Bank. Safe and consistent handling of the boat was key for the day, with Steve Goacher and his team on ‘Eric the Boat’ showing off their experience in grooming the boat throughout the course and taking a 1,2,1 in all 3 races on day 1, with Max Richards in Little Scarlett (saved from an argument with an angle grinder and a trip to the nautical scrapyard last summer) maintaining the pressure with a commendable 2,1,2.

Considering the age of the boats, it was miraculous to see the boats go through the strong conditions of the day with minimal damage (just 1 mast and 1 rudder!). Meanwhile, in the lifting keel fleet, Jim Lawrence and the team aboard Fiddler’s Elbow produced a respectable 1,2,1 to lead the way after 3 races.

Monday morning soon arrived, bringing with it a few headaches and body aches following an opportunity to explore Cowes the night before and a 15 knot chill from the northwest and associated complexities for Race Officer Richard Palmer and his team. From the start of Race 3 it was clear that the slightly more maneuverable breeze was going to compress the fleet, making already fantastic races even tighter.

This was especially highlighted by the 3 different race winners for the day, with race 4 going to Max Richardson and the team in ‘Little Scarlett’ having had a close battle with team ‘Joey’, race 5 going to Steve Goacher and the team in ‘Eric the Boat’ and Race 6 to a dominant Mark Angell and Team in ‘Minim’ (Another boat saved by the class association and masterfully restored by Mark).

Day 3 delivered a similar gift from the wind gods (not so much champagne sailing, but still a very pleasant bitter variegated type day). After a series of sequential wind changes prompted a series of postponements and an unorthodox method of brand recovery from the RIB of brand pose, a surge of enthusiasm led to some general recalls before the race. does not finally begin.

With early favorites “Little Scarlett” and “Eric the Boat” trading blows at the front of the fleet, the pecking order of the boats behind was slowly building up, with Lucian Stones “White Noise” showing the type of shape who earned their a podium spot at the 2018 Nationals at Medway, and ‘Minim’ showing the pace that delivered the goods for COVID has stood the Cowes Open Meeting in 2020 and ‘Joey’ posting sufficient results for them keep in chocolates.

As the final day approached with everyone playing across the fleet, the pressure was on “Little Scarlett” to keep their nose clean and keep their discard pile available for the 13th they suffered in Race 5 afterwards. a starting line with ‘Minim’ and ‘Joey’ (never start next to your local rivals…). 15-20 knots southwest and the reversal of the tide provided ideal conditions to fight for the end points.

In the end, “Little Scarlett” produced a consistent sailing master class to pass 3 balls on the last day, while “Eric the Boat” was right behind to take a comfortable second, followed by another consistent day for. “Joey” to round off the podium.

A podium finish for Joe Cross and the ‘Duette’ team, on his return to the class after winning the nationals in 2018 shows a worrying return to form to watch out for!

Special mentions have to go to the crew of “Maverick” for putting together the youngest crew in the event and blending it with excellent teams in difficult conditions, to “Araya” for coming back on the water after losing their rig in Race 2 and the lifting keel fleet to stand up to the fin keelboats in difficult conditions!

Thanks to the Island Sailing Club for an exhibition on running a sailing event, but especially to Mark Angell for his tireless efforts to keep this event running at the level it has reached, to Richard Palmer for his excellent management of racing, to Cowes Harbor Commission for providing docking to the fleet and also to Luke Goodall and Goodall Roofing for their overall support of the event.

by Kevin Gunn
For the past ten years, I have been fortunate enough to coach the Ursuline Academy High School Sailing Team in New Orleans, LA. We are recognized as a varsity sport in the girls’ school and have a fairly busy training and regatta schedule throughout the school year.

As is the case with teams of any sport, the 25 or so members of the Ursulines sailing team form a fairly close bond. After all, they spend a lot of time together practicing all the skills that come with competing in a two-seater dinghy.

While they like to sail the 420 and occasionally the FJ during the long season, they especially enjoy the very end of the season when they venture into the non-traditional high school boats.

Our District Championship Regatta is usually held at the beginning of April and the school year ends at the end of May. We don’t cancel our training after we fail to qualify for Nationals; we just focus on the pleasure of sailing!

We provide the entire fleet of the New Orleans Yacht Club which includes a Viper, a Flying Scot and small keelboats. Catamaran enthusiast, I also offer you my Hobie Getaway. The team members enjoy sailing all the boats on offer, but the Hobie is by far their favorite. Here’s why :

They are fast and wet
There is no greater pleasure than seeing the excitement on a child’s face as they experience the speed of a beach cat. At the first wave, plug your ears because as the water splashes on the tramp, the children will start screaming for joy. For children who do not have access to high performance boats, a beach cat is the fastest sailboat they will sail. What kid wouldn’t want to sail fast?

They are easy to navigate and social
Compared to other sailboats of comparable performance, they are incredibly easy to rig and navigate. Children are continuously educated, whether in school, yacht club junior programs, high school sailing schools, etc. However, when they are sailing the Hobie I point out how the traveler works instead of having a downhaul, give some tips on how to turn and then let go.

Less rigging and instruction time ashore means more time sailing with their friends. Speaking of sailing with friends, rotomolded cats such as the Hobie Wave, Hobie Getaway, or RS Sailing cats have a lot more hull volume than cats of yore. They can sail with a surprising number of children on board.

From their point of view, the catamaran is a party boat compared to the crew of two they are used to sailing with. Thanks to the simplicity of navigation and the stable platform, kids can socialize in a way they couldn’t when focusing solely on keeping the boat upright and under control.

They are relatively stable
In addition to coaching a high school team, I also worked several summers at an overnight camp that has a fleet of Hobie Waves. On days when it blows at 20mph we could still let the kids with very little experience ride the waves. They can still capsize, but not at about the same rate as monohull dinghies.

The absence of an arrow also greatly reduces the risk of injury. As a beginner sailor instructor in windy weather, I have a lot less to worry about when kids are riding small rotomolded cats compared to any monohull dinghy. In short, novice sailors get the thrill of sailing fearlessly in windy weather.

They are durable and affordable
Aside from the fact that rotomolded hulls are more durable than fiberglass (I’ve never had to repair a rotomolded hull after a boat collision), catamarans also have a lot fewer parts, which means a lot less parts. to be replaced when they break.

No universal rubber joint on the bar extension, no fin seals to handle, no boom (or boom vang), etc. The sails also have a much longer lifespan than most monohull dinghies because catamaran sails have solid battens, which keep the sails from whipping like other sails.

If you buy new boats, under $ 7,000, a new Hobie Wave is significantly inferior to a new 420 and will certainly last longer.

Conclusion
Competing in a racing team gives its members a reason to come and train and continue their development as young sailors, so for that reason I am completely ready to train children interested in racing to become competitive sailors. However, if high school sailing, or junior sailing in general, moved its regattas towards small rotomolded catamarans, I would come aboard for all the reasons mentioned above.

As that probably won’t happen in the foreseeable future, let’s at least expose the next generation of sailors to the joys of catamaran sailing. It is sure to put a smile on a child’s face.

Editor’s Note: We echo Kevin’s sentiment, but expand it further so that the next generation of sailors are aware of all the options in the sport. As great as school sailing at the high school and college level offers, it’s a segment of the sport that ends with a diploma. The sooner young people find what they can enjoy in sport as adults, the more likely they are to stay in sport beyond the school years.

As the Tokyo Olympics mark the end of the last class of tall men sailing boats, a Savannah man who almost sailed the boat for the United States in the 1996 games describes the move as silly.

“What’s wrong with the Finn?” Nothing, ”Eric Oetgen said in a phone call on August 6. Oetgen was on the US Olympic sailing team for three years in Finland, but had a bad regatta and lost his place on the weekend the team of 96 was chosen.

The size shame has nothing to do with the end of the Finn class which made its debut at the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki, according to the sport’s governing body.

It’s just part of the evolution of Olympic sailing, according to World Sailing. In announce a mixed doubles class that had effectively put the Finn out of his last chance to remain an Olympic class, observed World Sailing:

  • “The events and facilities of Paris 2024 will increase universality and increase the participation of women in sailing. “

To achieve these goals, three of the 10 classes in Paris 2024 are not real boats – windsurfers and kitesurfers use boats that look like surfboards. This change continues an effort to make Olympic sport more accessible, including a name change from yachting to sailing for the 2000 Games.

Enormous physical strength and stamina are needed to win for the Finn. Oetgen said he weighed 210 pounds when he campaigned against the Finn. That’s 25 pounds heavier than the average weight of Sailors at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the last The data available. Take the Finnish sailors out of this group and the average weight looks likely to drop.

Men don’t own the force franchise, and the Finn class Free to rig the boat for women of about 155 pounds, hoping to stay in the games. World Sailing rejected the offer.

Argentine Finnish sailor Facundo Olezza (who shows the strength of Finnish sailors in videos posted on his Facebook page) asked the president of the International Olympic Committee in May why big men are being taken off the sailing list, according to one report on sail-world.com:

Finnish Argentinian sailor Facundo Olezza asked the IOC chief why men of his size were, for the most part, declared too fat to compete in future Olympic sailing events. Credit: robertdeaves.uk via facebook.com/facundo.olezza

  • Olezza: “I am a 100 kg sailor [220 pounds]. Without your help, I will be excluded and discriminated against from the Olympic family after Tokyo. I am not speaking just for myself, but for hundreds of sailors around the world who will not have the chance to be part of the Olympic family.
  • IOC President Thomas Bach: “Let’s see what will happen…. Sorry, I can’t promise you more than that, at the moment.

Strength and weight are peculiar to the Finn as the sailor has to pump the boat when the wind is behind, rocking the boat vigorously from side to side to force it to go faster. The weight is so important that some sailors wear jackets filled with weight, which means they have to be strong enough to handle the extra pounds. As five-time Olympic medalist Ben Ainslie of Great Britain said in a video showing the pumping technique:

  • “Obviously you have to be really fit to be at the top of the game. The fittest guys come out on top and that’s part of the Olympic idea, to be higher, faster, stronger.

Giovanni Galeotti has none of these. In a commentary on World Sailing’s discussion of Olympic boats and equipment, Galeotti – no information other than his name has been released – intervened:

Only sumo wrestlers (left) and Star Sailors, a group that includes Paul Cayard, executive director of US Sailing, will oppose the move to lighter sailors, a blogger wrote on the page of the governing body for sport.

  • “Having to eat like a pig to be competitive is particularly unhealthy. Therefore, the lighter the better (sumo wrestlers and star crews will oppose this). The Star Class is moving in the right direction, but why not reduce the weight even further. Very few humans need to weigh more than 90 kg to be in great shape.

Oetgen noted that the Finn is a launching pad for other major sailing platforms, a point confirmed by Ainslie’s record in the America’s Cup, the world’s oldest still active international competition.

“What the Finn class offers is a boat for the big men of our world, men weighing 200 to 250 pounds,” said Oetgen. “The Finn class has been the dominant lone sailor in the country, and if you get off the Finn you advance to the Star or America’s Cup or become a professional sailor and become one of the best sailors in the world.”

Finnish sailors are drawn to the Star because their weight prevents the large sail plan from capsizing the ship. Incidentally, the star was eliminated from the Olympic class after the 2012 games. The stars bid being chosen for the new class of mixed keelboats for Paris 2024 is not on the World Sailing short list.

The ideal weight for a kiteboarder and male windsurfer is 140 to 160 pounds, according to comments from a few blogs. Here, the kite pulling the sailor is out of sight, and a windsurfer is in the background. Credit: Zach Dischner via wikimedia

Ainslie retired from Olympic competition after London 2012, and went on to dominate the America’s Cup in a 2013 victory declared by “The Wall Street Journal” as “the greatest comeback in history. sport “. Ainslie served as a tactician on the team funded by Oracle founder and billionaire Larry Ellison. By this time, Ainslie had been knighted in recognition of the honor his medals had brought to Britain – four gold and one silver.

Oetgen said his piloting career was largely behind him, although in 2018 he beat a fleet of 34 Sunfish at to win the masters world championship. For now, he spends time with his work and his family and teaches his daughter one of the things he does very well: to make a sailboat go fast, especially downwind, in which he is good at.

“I asked him, ‘Can you feel how the boat is moving faster when you shift your weight forward?’ “Oetgen said.

Note to readers: David Pendered covered Olympic yachting from 1994 to the 1996 Summer Olympics, at venues in Miami and Savannah. He covered sailing at the X Paralympic Games on Lake Lanier when sailing was a demonstration sport and medals were awarded to the top three – Great Britain, Canada and the United States.

August 5, 2021 – In 1816, Congress passed a law stating that “Licenses to trade with Indians within the territorial limits of the United States will be granted only to citizens of the United States, except on the express direction of the President.” “

The law did not apply to traders in the northern and eastern sections of what is now North Dakota, as at that time it was owned by Great Britain. Two years later, however, England signed a treaty with the United States which determined that all land south of the 49th parallel would now be in American ownership. The question was … what, exactly, now belonged to the states?

The government put in a quarter of a million dollars for what was called the Yellowstone Expedition, which was planned by Secretary of War John Calhoun. Its stated objective was “to extend and protect our commerce with the Indians”. They would also find the 49th parallel and try a steamboat route that could provide “safe and easy communication with China.”

Colonel Henry Atkinson was responsible for the 800 to 1,000 troops accompanying the expedition, and Major Stephen H. Long headed the scientific corps. It was the first time that steamboats were used on the Missouri River, and it turned out to be a mistake; sailing steamboats on the Big Muddy was much more difficult than using keelboats. Of the five steamboats they used, only one – the Western Engineer – was designed for shallow water, and they were not launched from St. Louis until June 21, 1819, after the spring runoff subsided and the lower river.

Only three of the steamers managed to maneuver upstream. Even the Western Engineer was striving to reach a top speed of three miles an hour, and sandbanks were a constant problem. Huge amounts of wood were needed for fuel, and the muddy river water clogged the boilers. It has been said, “A man can grow corn in his stomach if he drinks Missouri water.”

The expedition only reached Council Bluffs, where they had to stop and prepare for winter. The government severely cut credits and the expedition was ultimately considered a failure. Major Long returned east, calling the plains “the great American desert.”

Four years later, however, Major Long headed north again to find the 49th parallel. This time he arrived through the valley of the Minnesota River with a small infantry escort. The expedition was treated to a dog feast by the Dakotas of Wahpeton, but further north a different group was not so welcoming. Long had to push his men with forced marches that covered nearly 25 miles a day.

It was on this date in 1823 that Long and his men arrived in Pembina. The village was a thriving fur trading post at the time, but men found it almost deserted. James Calhoun, who had planned the previous expedition, mapped the stars that night, determined the 49th parallel, and erected an oak pole with GB engraved on the north side and US on the south side.

Pembina, who everyone assumed was still British, was more in the United States.

The next day, the townspeople returned with 115 Red River carts, each loaded with about 800 pounds of buffalo meat and skins. When Long informed them that they were no longer British, they weren’t at all impressed. The Hudson’s Bay Company had conducted its own investigation earlier this year and came to the same conclusion. The citizens of Pembina who wanted to remain British had already left the city, and Métis families had settled in to take their place.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic sailing competition concluded with two medal races among the 470 men and 470 women.

The 470 becoming a mixed event for Paris 2024, it was today the last time that these partnerships ran side by side in the same boat.

The 8-10 knot wind conditions created tough cardiovascular competition combined with close-quarters tactics and precise handling of the boat.

Men’s two-seater sailing dinghy – 470

Mat Belcher and Will Ryan (AUS) won gold in men’s 470, Anton Dahlberg and Fredrik Bergstrom (SWE) silver and Jordi Xammar and Nico Rodriguez (ESP) bronze.

From the start, it was even between the main contenders for silver and bronze – Spain and Sweden. Both teams got off to good starts in light wind conditions, with the crews working hard to propel the boat through the waves using kinetic rebounds.

Australia had started on the port tack, slipping behind the fleet so as not to disrupt the competition for silver and bronze, but towards the top of the course Belcher and Ryan were back in contention for the lead, with New Zealand now defying Spain.

Coming from the left side of the course and arriving at the first mark just ahead, Sweden was neck and neck with Australia, Spain in third. Dahlberg and Bergstrom were on their way to the silver medal if they could hold onto the lead.

Australia pumped, whispered and surfed in a narrow lead around the Leeward Gate, and now the top four in the race were the top four overall: Australia, Sweden, Spain and Nova -Zeeland, front line to the last windward mark.

Belcher and Ryan won the Medal Race, their last race together, the perfect conclusion to a stellar partnership. Sweden crossed in second and won silver. The United States and New Zealand had passed Spain, but Xammar and Rodriguez clung to bronze just two points behind the Kiwis.

Belcher is the all-time best sailor on 470 as he retires from the class, with today’s gold to add to his London 2012 gold and Rio 2016 silver. won eight world titles, including five with Ryan.

“It was an amazing trip,” said Belcher, “and a great honor to run alongside this guy,” he added, gesturing towards Ryan.

“It was a great partnership, and it took five years just to step one step closer to the podium and realize this dream together.”

Ryan commented, “In the last nine years since we’ve teamed up, there’s been a lot of hard work together, but also a lot of fun. And really proud of how we’ve come every step of the way. “

Women’s two-seater sailing dinghy – 470

Hannah Mills and Eilidh McIntyre (GBR) won gold in 470 Women, Agnieszka Skrzypulec and Jolanta Ogar (POL) won silver and Camille Lecointre and Aloise Retornaz (FRA) bronze.

At the start, the fleet set off on starboard with the exception of Poland and France on port tack, the two boats escaping early to the right.

Britain turned towards the other two boats and was in the lead, Mills and McIntyre occasionally putting close cover on Lecointre and Retornaz to prevent the French from breaking through to the front of the fleet. Other teams have entered the race for the lead, with Switzerland and Germany going fast.

Around the first mark, Switzerland was in the lead, Great Britain in second, France in sixth, one place ahead of Poland. In the next round, Poland moved up to fourth place, two places ahead of France and they were now level on points. However, the Polish team fell back again and were bronze.

On the last downwind leg, the Swiss held the lead while Great Britain was second, but around the mark for the final turn Great Britain were passed by Germany, Israel and Poland.

Linda Fahrni and Maja Siegenthaler (SUI) won the Medal Race, taking fourth place overall. Next come Germany, Israel and Poland, followed by Great Britain in fifth place. This put Poland back on a level playing field with France, giving France silver and bronze.

The gold medal celebrations did not last long on the British boat as soon after the arrival the jury was informed that France was protesting against Britain. The protest was heard ashore and the case was closed. The medal ceremony had been a brief delay, but Britain could finally celebrate gold.

Along with London 2012 silver and Rio 2016 gold, gold in Tokyo makes Mills the most successful Olympic sailor of all time. McIntyre’s gold matches the feat of his father Mike McIntyre who won Star keelboat gold for Great Britain in 1988. Lecointre reiterates his Rio 2016 bronze.

“It’s been a tough regatta all week, and I haven’t had much time to think about celebrating the win yet. We were so focused on running our best race in what was probably my last time in 470, ”said Mills, who is retiring from Olympic competition. McIntyre said his main emotion was relief. “Relief that we came and accomplished what we set out to do, and to share the podium with these two incredible teams. “
