    A mixed opening day for Peter Burling and Blair Tuke at the 49er sailing world championships in Auckland


    The Olympic gold medalists have won their opening race before finishing 11th in race two after capsizing.

    Tuke assesses their contrasting results.



    The pair are 11th overall, Isaac McHardie and William McKenzie are 19th, and Logan Dunning-Beck and Oscar Gunn are 33rd.

    The 49erFX and Nacra 17 classes didn't get on the water due to rough conditions.
