Paul Cayard takes over lead at Star Midwinter Championship

Published on January 11th, 2014

Miami, FL (January 11, 2014) – With two more races today at the Star Midwinter Championship, Paul Cayard and Rodney Hagebols completed their climb up the rankings to now lead the 26-boat fleet. As the third leader in three days, their 5-1 was low point for the day.

The battle between Philip Carlson and Tomas Hornos for the Junior (under 25 years old) trophy continues to rage; Hornos jumped out to a big lead after Race 7, only to see all but one point of that lead disappear with Carlson’s blinding pin-end start and eventual 5th place finish to Race 8. Carlson’s crew Chris Lanza says regardless of which ‘kid’ wins, their participation is a win for the class. “What’s great about these guys is that they both have a great attitude, they both love competing, and no matter what happens, it seems like they’re always right next to each other at the end of the regatta.”

The 7-race series concludes Sunday.
