Tommaso Chieffi steered Eurosia to victory in the second of the five-race series, the Sheraton Trophy Race, at the Swan World Championship in Sardinia yesterday. He finished the 32-mile race, which took the 81- boat fleet from Porto Cervo around the Maddalena Islands of the Costa Smeralda, just over a minute-and-a-half ahead of the rest of the competition on corrected time. Richard Loftus' Desperado of Cowes was the highest placed British yacht - second overall - as the opening race winner, Stephen Fein, slipped to sixth in Full Pelt.

The second day of racing at the Laser European Championships in Austria was cancelled yesterday due to a lack of wind, leaving Britain's Ben Ainslie in sixth place overall.
