Laser North American Championship – Day 2
Published on July 26th, 2013
(July 26, 2013) – Today was day two at the Laser North American Championships here at Cork in Kingston. We have 250 athletes competing with 73 Laser’s, 162 Radial’s and 15 4.7’s on the race courses. The weather this morning was cool with light winds. The Radial red fleet headed out first to get the 3rd race that they were not able to get in yesterday. Following that race, Brenda Bowskill a member of the Canadian Sailing Team (CST) was leading.
The Laser fleet found some wind and were able to complete 3 races today. At the end of the day the Canadians are leading the pack, with Canadian Sailing Team member Lee Parkhill leading with 5 first place finishes over the last 2 days. He is followed by David Wright another CST member, Greg Clunies a Canadian identified athlete and Robert Davis a CST member and local Kingston Native.
The 4.7 fleet were also able to get 3 races in today. Leading the charge is Macey Mccann from Texas followed JESSICA Lietz from New York, and Parker Hughes another Texas native.
The Radial fleet had a long day waiting for the wind to fill. They were able with much effort from the race committee to get the 4th race completed. Brenda Bowskill of the CST had another 1st place finish in her heat and leads the overall Radial fleet. Erika Reineke of the USA and a former Youth World Champion is sitting right behind Brenda in second place. Erika is followed by fellow US sailor Gary Prieto.
Following today’s results the fleet will be split into Gold, Silver and Bronze (for the Radials). We are hopeful that tomorrow will bring another beautiful Kingston day and good winds.
To all watching we will continue to post updates and results as they are available throughout the race day.
