Bruce Kendall wins Men’s Board Gold, Seoul 1988

At Pusan in 1988, when the Lechner was used, Bruce Kendall was in magnificent form. Despite a bad bout of the flu he had already sewn up the gold medal before the final race. There were 45 in the fleet in Pusan and his placings were 3-3-1-5-8-1-9.  He was the second New Zealander, after Russell Coutts, to have won a single-handed Olympic yachting gold medal. He was voted New Zealand Sailor of the Year in 1988
