Switzerland's Bernard Haissly guided Fleu to its second win in three races on a difficult, patchy day for the 6-metre European Championship in the Solent yesterday. The classics had to be abandoned.

The Nioulargue Regatta for Classic Yachts is to be staged again in late September/early October after being suspended when the French courts tried to make the organisers responsible for the death of a competitor during a 6-metre race in 1995.

A win for Iain Percy in the second race of the Finn Gold Cup in Athens put him eighth overall. The current world champion, Frederik Loos of Sweden, is in the lead.
