Double gold to AUS 470 teams using centre boards produced by Mark Thorpe Boat Building.

Congratulations to Australian sailors Nathan Wilmot, Malcolm Page, Elise Rechichi and Tessa Parkinson for winning GOLD in the mens and womens 470 classes at the Beijing Olympic games. Both teams were using new centre boards produced by Mark Thorpe Boat Building.
In late 2007 the Australian Sailing Team aproached Mark Thorpe Boat building to build new centre boards for the 470 teams. An extensive R & D project was undertaken to find the fatest posible centre boards for the expected conditons at the Olympic venue, Qingdao China. Many centre boards were produced until the AUS sailing team chose the centre boards to be used at the games.
What a fantastic result.
