Two New Zealand sailing crews have grabbed 5th placed finishes at the latest World Cup regatta in Spain.

Hamish Pepper and Jim Turner were 5th in the Star and Dan Slater was 5th in the Finn.

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

The NZL Sailing Team has qualified for the London 2012 Olympics in all classes except the Star, and that spot will be contended for at the 2012 Star Class World Championships in May.
