Jones and Saunders going for gold at world champs test event

Gemma Jones and Jason Saunders didn't really know what to expect in their first regatta together since last year's Olympics. Tonight (NZ time) they will sail for the gold medal at the sailing world championships test event in Aarhus.

The pair are second in the Nacra 17 fleet with three medal races scheduled tonight. They managed only one race this morning due to light winds, being sent out onto the course at 6pm Denmark time, and banked a second to leave them only three points behind the leaders, Lin Cenholt and Christian Lubeck of Denmark.
