Summary

The British crew of Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark had won the 2012 World title in this event and hoped to add the Olympic gold medal in front of their fans. After the opening 10-race series the Brits were equal with the New Zealand pair of Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie, who had won the last three Sail for Gold World Cup events at Weymouth. But the medal race was all New Zealand, locking up the gold medal early in the final contest, as the British crew was caught on the wrong side of a big wind shift on the first leg and would drop back to silver. In addition, the very light winds of the medal race caused the committee to shorten it, making the New Zealand lead unassailable. The Dutch crew of Lisa Westerhof and Lobke Berkhout placed sixth in the medal race to hold onto the bronze medal position.
