Andy Maloney takes Bronze at Laser World Championships

The NZL Sailing Team produced results to remember overnight, lead by Andy Maloney’s bronze medal finish at the 2012 Laser World Championships in Germany.

Star sailors Hamish Pepper and Jim Turner won their race and secured the country’s qualification spot for the Olympic Games, and the 49er men climbed up the leader board to second overall.

The NZL Sailing Team are in Europe with three world championship regattas underway, and three more about to begin. The Laser World Championships in Germany, where five New Zealanders are competing, and the Star World Championships in France have just two days of racing left each.
