2019 Hempel World Cup Series Miami - Day 2

2019 Hempel World Cup Series Miami - Day 2

Wednesday, January 30th, 2019 - Miami, Florida

Sailors started gathering in Regatta Park in Coconut Grove earlier this morning for day 2 of racing at the 2019 Hempel World Cup Series Miami. With another day of light wind, many races we’re abandoned and postponed.

 

Heading out before the breeze died down in the early afternoon, the sailors in the 49erFX were able to complete a total of three races today. CSDS athletes, Ali Ten Hove and Mariah Millen lead the Canadians in the first two races of the day, finishing 24th and 22nd. Followed by CSDS member Georgia Lewin-LaFrance and sister Antonia LaFrance who completed the first two races in 28th and 36th, but made their way back up the scoreboard scoring a 15th place finish in the third race of the day, placing them in 21st overall.

 

The Finn class has not had as much luck in completing races over the past couple of days. Completing the only race of day 2, CST member Tom Ramshaw was able to move up the scoreboard finishing 11th, placing him 15th overall.

 

The wind is looking up for the rest of the week, stay tuned as our sailors head back out tomorrow for day 3 of fleet racing!
