Shaw still in yellow at French Olympic Sailing Week in Hyeres

Hyeres startline – Bryony centre ... in yellow!

RS:X racer Bryony Shaw and Paul Goodison (Laser) head the British charge at the half way stage of the French Olympic Sailing Week in Hyeres (Tuesday 27 August), leading their respective fleets.

Tuesday’s race schedule was once 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‘s RS:X women’s windsurfing class saw just one race, which the Olympic bronze medallist won to extend her lead.

RS:X World Champion Nick Dempsey is in fourth overall in the men’s windsurfing event, with a fifth and a sixth to show for his two races.

Racing at the French Olympic Sailing Week is set to resume on Wednesday 28 April, with the final medal races scheduled for Friday 30 April.
