Annalise Murphy continued her rich vein of form taking gold at the Delta Lloyd Regatta in Medemblik, Netherlands on Saturday just two weeks after claiming the Eurosaf Champions Sailing Cup.
The Dún Laoghaire single-hander entered the medal race in third, two points behind Britain’s Alison Young. Also in contention were China’s Lijia Xu and Dutch racer Marit Bouwemester, gold and silver medalists respectively at the London Olympics.
Murphy grabbed the initiative from the off and was one minute clear by the first mark and maintained her advantage to claim first place.
“I got so far ahead, I didn’t have to worry. I had a good week and am happy with my performance,” she said.
