Paralympic sailors win gold

Daily Echo: Helena Lucas Helena Lucas

Great Britain's Paralympic sailors picked up two gold medals and a silver at the Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta today.

The finals were cancelled in the three Paralympic classes due to adverse weather conditions in Weymouth and Portland, meaning the standings ended as they were.

Alexandra Rickham and Niki Birrell won the SKUD 18 class as a result, while Southampton-based Helena Lucas took home silver in the 2.4mR.

Skandia Team GBR's success was completed by John Robertson, Hannah Stodel and Steve Thomas, who took home gold in the Sonar.
