GB Olympic duo lead the way in Miami World Cup
OLYMPIANS Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark led the field in the women’s 470 class, on the conclusion of the first day of the Miami World Cup.
The duo, who landed silver at last month’s World Championships, in Australia, secured a four-minute victory over the second-placed Dutch pair, Lisa Westerhof and Lobke Berkhout in what was their only win of the day, given the dying breeze.
Sophie Weguelin and Sophie Ainsworth were fourth - the same as Skandia Team GBR pair Ben Saxton and Richard Mason in the men’s equivalent with Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell 11th.
Olympic champion Paul Goodison sits second in the Laser fleet thanks to third and first places while Charlotte Dobson is third in the Laser Radial.
SKUD world champions Alexandra Rickham and Niki Birrell are ahead of their fleet in Biscayne Bay.
