49er/FX & Nacra North American Championships
Clearwater Community Sailing Center is hosting the North American championships for skiffs and multihulls this weekend as sailors wrapped up their World Cup event in Miami only last week. This event is a significant one for skiffs as it serves as the National team qualifier in addition to the Pan American Games selection event for the Canadian FX fleet. Vying for the Toronto 2015 spot will be top Canadian finishers at Miami World Cup, Erin Rafuse/Dannie Boyd, Erin Berry/Ingrid Merry, & Arielle Morgan/Heather Myatt.
National team skiffs include Justin Barnes/Dave Mori, Mike Brodeur/Dan Inkpen & Arthur/John Ferguson.
The Nacra fleet consists of 20 competitive boats including Canadian Nacra duo, Luke Ramsay & Nikola Girke. CAN 100 finished 15th at the most recent world cup in Miami.
Action kicked off today and continues through until Sunday with medal ceremonies for the top finishers in each fleet.
