New Zealand sailors Gemma Jones and Jason Saunders still occupy top-10 spots at the Nacra 17 Olympic-class world championship in the Netherlands.

Second after a weather-disrupted first day of racing at The Hague, the Kiwis were 20th, third and fourth in their fleet races today to be eighth overall, although the leaderboard is bunched with three days remaining.

Meanwhile, Josh Junior is fourth and Andrew Murdoch fifth at the midway point of the European Finn-class championship at Warnemunde, Germany.

Adding a second, sixth and 12th in today's three races, Junior climbed two spots in the 103-strong fleet, while Murdoch had a fourth, fifth and 11th.

Junior is just four points adrift of the leader, Visilij Zbogar, of Slovenia.
