Men’s and Women’s RS:X windsurfing qualify for 2016 Olympics

Both Jon Paul Tobin and Natalia Kosinska have bowed out of the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships without making the top ten sailors, and neither will sail tomorrow’s medal race.

Both have however sailed well enough to qualify New Zealand for a Rio 2016 Olympic berth in the both the men’s and women’s windsurfing. 18 places were on offer for the men at this regatta and Tobin has finished 16th overall, well inside the top 18 nations.

In the women’s RS:X just the top thirteen placed nations would earn the right to send one representative to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Kosinska ended the regatta in 22nd overall, after placing 19th, 24th and 21st in today’s three gold fleet races, and New Zealand was the 13th placed nation just squeaking in for Olympic qualification.
