Robertson on course for sailing success

Have your say

WEARSIDER John Robertson is on course for success in the Weymouth and Portland ISAF Sailing World Cup event on the south coast.

British Paralympians Robertson, Hannah Stodel and Steve Thomas sat two points clear in the Sonar class following yesterday’s action.

Stodel, the tactician on-board the three-person Sonar, explained: “It was a good day out there, it was massively shifty though; so it was anybody’s game. We got a little bit of luck when we wanted it and we sailed pretty well actually so we did deserve it.”

The trio have been pleased to shake off an under-par start to the regatta on Monday where they ended 12th in their opening race.

The racing continues today and tomorrow.
