Meech blunder could prove costly
Sam Meech hopes a blunder early on the first day of gold fleet sailing at the Laser European Championships doesn’t cost him in the final wash-up. Meech finished 15th in the first race in La Rochelle after making a directional blunder, before bouncing back to win the second. It leaves him one point adrift from the lead, with the 15th placing discarded as his worst score. However, he knows any further slipups will hamper his chances.
