#SailforGold – Irish Olympic sailing campaigners are off to a mixed start in Weymouth today with Annalise Murphy lying 12th in Sail for Gold regatta after a single race today. "Seven hours on the water for one race today. Frustrating but at least it wasn't raining! Hopefully some more races tomorrow, Annalise tweeted this evening.

Also sailing the radial this week are a batch of Irish youth sailors who finished the race ahead of Annalise, one after another in the 31-boat fleet; Darragh O'Sullivan finished sixth, Cian Byrne seventh, Fionn Lyden eighth, Finn Lynch ninth and Seafra Guilfoyle tenth.

Ireland's 49er pairing Ryan Seaton and Matt McGovern are back in action for the first time since London 2012 are sixth after three races. The two new 49erfx Irish girls teams are at the back of the 8–boat fleet. Andrea Brewester and Claudine Murphy are seventh and Tiffany Brien and Saskia Tidey are eighth.

James Espey was 17th in his 31–boat Laser fleet

#sailforgold – Annalise Murphy takes a bronze medal back to Dun Laoghaire tonight after winning the Laser Radial medal race at the Sail for Gold regatta in Weymouth today. The 22-year old Dubliner has repeated last year's performance in Weymouth to take bronze for the second year running at the Olympic venue event.

Today's final medal race win brought her from fifth to third overall, beating world champion Marit Bouwmeester of Holland in to the bargain.

Ireland stands to add to its tally later today with Skiff sailors Ryan Seaton and Matt McGovern will be next to sail in the 49er medal race this afternoon. Peter O'Leary and David Burrows, currently in third place in the Star class, will also be hoping for a podium place.

 More results as we have them.
