Great Britain won four medals at the ISAF Sailing World Cup in France.

World champion Giles Scott took gold in the Finn medal decider in Hyeres, while Scott's stablemate Ed Wright claimed bronze in the same event on Sunday.

Nick Thompson won silver in the Laser, with bronze going to Luke Patience and Elliot Willis in the 470 Men's class.

"It's been really high scoring, so to come away and be the most consistent out there was for sure very rewarding," said Scott, 27, who won by 24 points.

"To win here is a great feeling."

Olympic silver medallists Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark had harboured hopes of a medal-winning finale to their week, but finished fourth in the 470 Women's event.

England's Weymouth and Portland venue is next on the World Cup calendar on 8 June.

It is the fourth of five events before the final in Abu Dhabi on 27 October.
