Rio GOLD in sailing

It was Rio GOLD in sailing for client Giles Scott who so excelled that he won his Medal with a race to spare. Before the event, Giles had won 19 out of his previous 21 regattas and after a wobbly start with a 17th place yet again proved Great Britain's continued dominance in this single handed dinghy.

The other Team GB sailors sponsored by PHB all did wonderfully well to finish in the top ten. For each, it was their first attempt at winning Gold and there is every hope that better things will come at Tokyo 2020. In the 49er Class, Dylan Fletcher and Alain Sign finished in sixth place; Charlotte Dobson and Sophie Ainsworth were eighth in the 49fx class with Ben Saxton and Nicola Groves finishing ninth in the Nacra catamaran.
