Matt Wearn had had a great start in relatively strong conditions in the French Olympic Week Olympic classes regatta in Hyères. Matt was leading with 2,1,1,1 in the 130 boat competition after two days. He went on to sit on top of the leaderboard for the qualifying series, but then dropped to third on the first day of the final series before qualifying for the Medal Race in sixth. Mat was 3rd in the medal race to finish the up and down series in fifth place. Pavlos Kontides won the series. Finn Alexander was the next best in the Australian team finishing 12th.

Our Tokyo Olympic representative Mara Stransky finished strongly with a second place in the medal race for a ninth place overall in the high scoring series in the Women’s ILCA 6.
