Sophia Reineke sets fast pace at U.S. Junior Women’s Singlehanded Champs

Published on July 20th, 2014

The U.S. Junior Women’s Singlehanded Championship has attracted 33 Laser Radial sailors to San Diego, CA, but so far the three day event (July 18-20) has been all about Sophia Reineke from Ft Lauderdale, FL.

Reineke made a strong statement on Friday by posting a perfect score through four races to take a 12-point lead in the event, hosted by the Mission Bay Yacht Club. On Saturday, Simone Staff (Los Angeles, Calif.) was nearly able to match Reinke’s pace, as they both posted two bullets during the four races held.

Racing concludes Sunday.
