Royal Yachting Association’s Olympic manager Stephen Park said: Miami is always a great host city and a god light wind to measure the progress of our winter training programme, so it’s been a great event from that perspective.”

He continued: “Our medal count across the classes is pleasing, and overall it’s a great performance from the team. We now look forward to the next block of winter raining ahead of the ISAF Sailing World Cup in Palma in April.”
