Reigning World and National Champions Sam and Daisy Coleman settled for a solid silver medal in this weekend’s UK season opener.

The Aalborg Regatta, Denmark hosted some fantastic heat racing with over 70,000 spectators enjoying the weekend festival.

Sam and Daisy Coleman qualified second, pipped by just four tenths of a second to pole position by current USA Champions and fellow Welshmen; James Norvill and Christian Parsons-Young.

Sam and Daisy then won both of their heat races on the Saturday setting the stage for a straight showdown between the UK and USA Champions in Sunday’s Grand Finale.

Ultimately, with the teams so evenly matched it was pole position which enabled the USA Champs to make it first to the first turn mark. With a tight course and flat water James and Christian drove faultlessly leaving no opportunity for the hard charging Coleman Racing duo to take the win.

But the real icing on the cake for Pembrokeshire on the the weekend was a fantastic debut for the Milford Waterfront backed team of Andrew Foster and Charles Morris  - who in the ‘Pembrokeshire Panther’, completed an all Welsh-podium with third.

The next round takes the teams to Greenock for the Scottish leg of the tour in only two weeks time, before they head to home waters in the P1 Welsh Grand Prix of the Sea, Milford Haven, over July 15 and 16.
