Josh Junior now 11th in world

Wellington sailor Josh Junior finished twelfth in the 115-strong Laser fleet at the fourth round of the Sailing World Cup at Hyeres, France (24-29th April). Consistent top-twenty results in the first four days of racing put him within a whisker of a top-ten finish. Junior struggled in light winds on April 28th, dropping him back to twelfth place overall. The result puts Junior in eleventh place in the World Sailing Cup, part of his build up toward Olympic success in 2012.
