Medal race day at the Delta Lloyd Regatta 2014 : Megan Pascoe wins gold in 2.4 mR with a race to spare
Megan Pascoe (GBR) also only needed one good race to retain her 2013 Delta Lloyd Regatta title, and she did that in the first race of the day with a second place to win the regatta with a race to spare. Helena Lucas (GBR) and Matt Bugg (AUS) were both OCS in the second race which meant that Barend Kol (NED) took the silver and Guus Bijlard (NED) took the bronze.

Pasco said of her win, “It's really, really promising. It's my fourth medal of the year. Retaining my title at Medemblik is really nice. It's an amazing place and I seem to really like it. Medemblik is always tricky, always shifty. You have to understand that anything can happen. I had a bit of luck yesterday, managed to go from fifth to first down the last run which probably shouldn't have gone my way, but it did. Sometimes you just have to hold onto your hat and hope everything is going to come out right.”

On coming out top Brit. “It's always quite exciting to be the top Brit. We've had battles over the past few years. We had battles going into Beijing and London, and I seemed to keep losing those battles, but this time it's definitely promising. We've been doing a lot more technical stuff, working with Rob my coach who is really good, so that really helps.”
