Pepper and Monk are New Zealand’s new pairing in the Star class; Pepper the Star World Champion in 2006, and Monk an Olympic bronze medallist in the Finn. Since the start of their Olympic campaign this season the pair were 9th at Delta Lloyd Regatta in Germany, and won silver at Kiel Week last month.
