In the Paralympic Sailing Portland's Helena Lucas sits in bronze medal position after a tough weekend of racing (Sat 1st - Sun 2nd September 2012).

She took third place from her first race at the Paralympic Sailing Regatta at Weymouth and Portland.

But the second race didn't go to plan.

She had to complete two penalty turns for trying to make the boat go faster by rocking it and she finished 11th.
