Cork Olympic Classes Regatta – Day 1

Published on August 17th, 2013

Kingston, ONT (August 17, 2013) – The first day of Cork Olympic Classes Regatta (OCR) has finished. It was light but steady breeze with winds from the South West.

The 49er, 49er FX and the I14’s provided great entertainment for the spectators off the pier on the Mike course.  They were able to complete 3 races today and headed in around 4:30 pm.  In speaking with the sailors while the winds were a little shifty, they enjoyed the course and were pleased with how the races where managed. The Windsurfers were able to get in four races.

The Radial, Laser and the Finn fleets each had 3 races.  The sailors found it tough especially the Laser’s and Finn’s as they were looking for stronger breeze

Stop by tomorrow as one of our sponsors Samsung Canada, has set up their 85 inch Series 9 Ultra High Definition TV.  Courtesy of photographers David Hein and Geoff Webster their pictures will be on display.  You may also catch a National team coach completing his debrief with some video from today’s racing.
