Paul Goodison and Bryony Shaw head the British charge at the half way stage of the French Olympic Sailing Week in Hyeres, leading their respective Laser and RS:X windsurfing fleets.

Tuesday’s race schedule was again upset by the light wind conditions which prevailed over the area, and, in spite of the organisers pulling the start times forward only one race was possible in the majority of classes.

Shaw, the Olympic windsurfing bronze medallist won to extend her lead, while Goodison, the Olympic, World and European Champion, picked up a ninth but still managed to pull into the lead in the men’s single-handed event by just one point over Austria’s Andreas Geritzer.
