Home/All News/GOLD & SILVER!


It was a massive morning at RAYC with about 50 members making their way to the club from 5am to watch history in the making.

We already knew that Peter Burling & Blair Tuke had gold in the bag for the 49er, but it was an open playing field for medals in the 49erFX.

Alex Maloney & Molly Meech went into the medal race on 47 points. The top three places were all on 46 points. In a nail biting race, Maloney & Meech ended up second, pipped at the line by the Brazilian locals Martine Grael & Kahena Kunze.

TVNZ Breakfast was also at the club and conducted three live crosses. Members Isaac McHardy & William McKenzie, Ray Davies and Chris Dickson were all interviewed.

Congratulations to everyone who was involved with these four sailors winning Olympic medals!
