Stodel drops to eighth spot in Sonar

Student Hannah Stodel and her team have dropped to eighth in the Three Person Keelboat (Sonar) on day four of competition at the Qingdao sailing centre.

Finishing sixth after five races the team, which includes John Robertson and Stephen Thomas, have dropped two spots after finishes towards the bottom of the group.

The crew finished third in their final race of the day, improving on the seventh, eighth and sixth place finishes in rounds six to eight. At the end of round nine they have a net point score of 38 - 12 points from a podium spot and 17 points behind leaders from France.

The trio must improve performances in the final two rounds to move back up the table, though a podium place is doubtful at this stage.
