Dorset sailors bid for gold postposed

Dorset sailors Stuart Bithell and Luke Patience must wait until tomorrow [Friday] to reach for gold.

Light winds in Weymouth have meant their race - the men's 470 sailing class - has had to be postponed. They go into the medal race in second place, already guaranteed at least a silver medal. To win gold, they will have to overhaul their Australian rivals, who are four points ahead.
