Meech sec­ond

In brief

Sunday Star-Times - - SPORT -

Sail­ing: Kiwi Sam Meech has moved into sec­ond place at the Laser world cham­pi­onships af­ter a dis­rupted day of rac­ing in Croa­tia. Only one race was pos­si­ble on day two as the wind failed to play ball, but Meech made it count by fin­ish­ing sec­ond to con­tinue his strong start to the re­gatta. The Olympic bronze medal­list now has three top-five fin­ishes, in­clud­ing one win, to sit on seven points, four be­hind Cypriot Pav­los Kon­tides who has won all three of his races. ‘‘The breeze was ac­tu­ally fan­tas­tic by the time we got out, about 10-12 knots, it was just so slow to come,’’ Meech said.
