All six New Zealand crews have made their respective gold fleets at the halfway stage of the latest Olympic class World Cup regatta in Spain.

Hamish Pepper and Jim Turner are fourth in the Star class, Dan Slater is fifth in the Finn, while Sara Winther is the best of the rest in 15th place in the Laser radial.

This regatta is the third of seven ISAF World Cup events for the season, and is the first European regatta of 2012 for the New Zealand Sailing Team's campaigns toward 2012.
