Martin Wrigley believes he and sailing partner Bettine Harris have got more to give following a top-10 finish at the 470 World Championships in Palma de Mallorca.

The 27-year-old finished ninth alongside Harris after Sunday’s medal race was cancelled due to high winds.

Teammates Chris Grube and Vita Heathcote secured an Olympic quota place for Britain with their silver, making the nation the most successful country at the Championships.

Wrigley said: “I’m really proud of us as a team, not only myself and Bettine but Vita and Chris as well and what we’ve managed to do this winter.

“I’m glad for them and happy with what we’ve done but there is more to come yet.

“We’ve had a bit of a tricky time in this cycle so far so this is a really cool feeling.

“Since teaming up with Bettine, we’ve been trying to chip away and learn as much as we can, that’s why it’s nice to have finished inside the top 10.

“It’s impressive as a young team this late on in the cycle to do as well as we have and with as little experience as we have.”

Wrigley formed a new partnership with Harris after initial mixed 470 partner Eilidh McIntyre announced her retirement from sailing last year.

In a new fleet this cycle, Wrigley has been reunited with Tokyo 2020 training partner Grube, who sails alongside Heathcote and returned to the class following his own retirement.

With 470 sailing in a strong position going into the summer, Wrigley remains clear on the main goal for the British team.

He said: “When you look at the top 10 and the guys right at the front, they did so well this week because it is a real battle of attrition.

“It’s given us a lot of confidence and it feels like we know what we’re doing more.

“It’s been nice having Chris around as a friend in a new fleet – now we have the belief that we’ve got two boats that are right up there so it’s quite exciting.

“Whatever happens, the goal is to try and get Great Britain a medal this cycle, whether that’s for Chris and Vita or for us, it will leave us in a really good position for the next cycle.”
