May 29, 2010 (Medemblik, Holland) – Australians Mat Belcher and Malcolm Page solidified their hold on the #1 ISAF World Cup ranking by taking the silver medal at the Delta Lloyd Regatta, the Event 5 on the 2010 ISAF World Cup circuit. They claimed the podium position after besting the rest of the 81-boat fleet in the final two fleet races of the regatta to pull within seven points of Nic Asher and Eliot Wilis (GBR), who led throughout the entire regatta. The Poms held more cards in the double-point, short-course, medal round contested by the top 10 teams. By finishing third in the medal race Belcher and Page fell five points short of the gold. The Poms won the regatta with 66 points. Belcher/Page had 71, and the Croatians won the bronze.
