Laser North American Championship - Lousy breeze in the Limestone City
Sun, 28 Jul 2013
Day three at the Laser North Americans and day two of 49er/FX Canadians saw flukey wind in Kingston for both fleets.
Shifts on the course were out to kill even the cork cray best and it was anyone's game.
In the Standard Rig Gold fleet Greg Clunies, Lee Parkhill and David Wright battled for the lead in three races seeing Parkhill hold the lead. Top ten positions are also held by Robert Davis in fourth and Tom Ramshaw in fifth. Bullet awards go to Clunies, Ramshaw and Wright!
In the radial gold fleet the CST women had a tough start to the day, scattered throughout the fleet and dragging behind in tricky, shifty, soft conditions. Brenda Bowskill slipped her lead to land second overall with the closest team mate, Violet Stafford in 16th.
Over on the Skiff circuit, Boyd and Rafuse battled for first position with Berry and Laventure, while Ladha and Inkpen tried to keep their lead against Cook and Stranix.
