Two silvers for Britain add to medal hoard in Palma
Britain added two silver medals to the gold and silver already secured at the World Cup Regatta in Palma de Mallorca.
Two current Olympic gold medal teams, Paul Goodison came second in the Laser singlehander while Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson were second in the Star. Ahead of them were their greatest rivals, Robert Scheidt and Bruno Prada of Brazil.
Ben Ainslie had already made sure of the gold with a race to spare in the Finn singlehander and Helena Lucas took silver in the 2.4mR paralympic class.
Heading south towards Cape Horn the Spanish entry Camper has resumed racing after being repaired in Puerto Montt, Chile. And heading north from the River Plate is the French team, under reduced crew, reduced sail, and makeshift rig, both determined to make the finish of leg five of the Volvo round the world race from Auckland to Itajai, Brazil.
