Meech qual­i­fies

The Press - - Sport -

Kiwi yachties Sam Meech and Tom Saun­ders have com­fort­ably qual­i­fied for the gold fleet at the Laser world cham­pi­onships in Croa­tia. Meech con­tin­ued his good form, col­lect­ing three sec­ond-placed fin­ishes in the strong winds to sit in fourth, only two points be­hind Cypriot Pav­los Kon­tides, and he was joined in the top 10 by Saun­ders, who is sev­enth af­ter bank­ing a sec­ond, fourth and third in his three races. Andrew McKen­zie thought he had moved up con­sid­er­ably into 17th af­ter three solid races, only to be slapped with a dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion af­ter a protest.
