DISAPPOINTMENT FOR LAKE MACQUARIE SAILORS IN ITALY

Disappointment for Lake Macquarie sailor Will Ryan at the World Cup Series event in Italy.

Competing in the 470 class alongside Mat Belcher, the pair started the final day in seventh, with a chance of climbing into medal contention.

But the Olympic silver medallists jumped the gun at the start and were disqualified.

The ruling left them 10th overall.
