Olympic silver medallists Alex Maloney and Molly Meech have joined Laser sailor Tom Saunders in winning gold for New Zealand at the Enoshima Olympic Week regatta in Japan.
The Kiwi contingent came away with four medals, including golds to Alex Maloney and Molly Meech in the 49erFX, and Tom Saunders in the Laser.
Erica Dawson and Kate Stewart were third in the 49erFX, as were Logan Dunning Beck and Oscar Gunn in the 49er.
It was a good return for the Kiwi contingent, with eight of 10 boats finishing inside the top 10.
A number of countries were using the three-day regatta as a first opportunity to race at the venue for the 2020 Olympics and the Laser fleet in particular was littered with world, Olympic and European champions.
Saunders clinched gold on the back of a second placing in the only race of the last day, sailed in miserable weather as heavy rain hit Enoshima.
He finished 19 points ahead of Australia's Matthew Wearn, with fellow Kiwi Sam Meech fifth overall.
"There was obviously a lot of rain and there was poor visibility - it was probably the worst conditions I have sailed in," Sanders said.
"Going upwind you couldn't see the top mark and you could barely see the rest of the fleet. It was pretty strange in that sense but you just had to work with what you got."
Maloney and Meech easily won both their final races to finish nine points ahead of Germans Victoria Jurczok and Anika Lorenz, who had started the day level on points.
The Kiwis had a poor start to the regatta, ending the first day in seventh in the small fleet of 12 boats, but roared back with five wins and a second placing in the last six races.
