THE husband and wife team of Shayne and Torika Brodie are confirmed to win a gold medal in the hobie cat competition even if they don't win the remaining races today at the Pacific Mini Games.
The pair lead the competition with nine points and their closest opponents, New Caledonia, is 13 points behind on 22.
However, the two are treading in rough waters as winds reach over 20 knots.
Sailing is held at Liku Village, which is on the eastern coast of Wallis.
"So far we have been going out there, taking one race at a time and doing our best," Torika said.
"We want to complete the series on a good note but with winds like this, anything can happen so we have to be careful and make sure our boat stays on the right track," Shayne said.
The two have been sailing before they were married and say competing has brought them even closer.
"We have been married almost 10 years now and we had been sailing together since before we were married," Torika said.
"After getting married we are still sailing together. We do everything together. If we don't go sailing for a weekend, its not a good weekend," Shayne said.
He thanked the Minister of Sport, Viliame Naupoto, for his support towards the sport.
"We would like to thank the minister for coming down here to watch us many times.
"The support has been really huge and we would also like to thank our families and friends back home for their support."
The master and apprentice pair of Grahame Southwick and Apimeleki Tuicaucau are in the running for a bronze medal in the same competition.
They have 34 points.
