Annalise Murphy has won gold at the Laser European and World Championships today on her native Dublin Bay from Holland’s Olympic silver medallist Marit Bowmeester.

There was breezy finale on the waters off Dun Laoghaire Murphy but Murphy resumed the same kind of form which led to seven wins from her nine starts to date and convert her big lead to her first major Laser Radial title. A disappointing 27th in yesterday’s light breezes was her discarded result.
