RAINING MEDALS ON FINAL DAY OF SAIL MELBOURNE18 Jan 2023
Sail Melbourne returned in 2023 to the shores of Brighton for four full days of racing with more than 220 competitors in Olympic and invited classes in glamour conditions.
The last day of the event, the 470 fleet had their racing wiped out, which meant ASS team Nia Jerwood and Conor Nicholas from Western Australia maintained their dominant 10-point lead over the rest of the fleet to win Gold.
Australian Sailing Futures (ASF) athletes Sophie Jackson and Angus Higgins finished their final day the day before with a bullet which saw them secure second place, while James Jackson and Rebecca Hume came in third.
