No runaways at Laser North Americans:
Long Beach, CA (July 14, 2018) – All three fleets at The Moorings 2018 Laser North American Championships completed three more races on the third day of the competition. With now nine races on the scoreboard, a second discard is counted as competitors move tomorrow to the final day of racing.
The fight continues at the top of the Laser 4.7 division as Spencer Leman (CAN) and Abbie Carlson (USA) are now even on top of the 10-boat fleet. Leman’s erased his one point deficit entering the day by posting a 3-1-1.
Pacific Cup: Chutes and ladders:
(July 14, 2018) – As of early morning today, there is movement all over the leaderboard in almost every division, signifying that every fleet is still very close and ripe for the picking.
Closest to Hawaii, the first wave of starters has slowed slightly but is still making better comparative speed than any other wave, while the day two and three starters have again slowed to a crawl. The final wave of July 13 starting big boats appear to have ironically found a bit of a good luck as the weather system has evolved from 24 hours ago and looks to potentially offer them a quicker than expected escape from the coast and the worst of the light air.
