Canadian Recap Day 2: Delta Lloyd Regatta
WEDNESDAY, MAY 21, 2014
Today’s Delta Lloyd schedule didn’t quite go as planned with light winds delaying racing by over five hours. At one point today, any quality racing looked quite unlikely, but in the end only a few races were lost, and the races that were held were of a very good quality with a stable wind of between 6 and 10 knots for most races.
Canadian Radial sailors had a good day on the water with Isabella Bertold leading the way with a 12, 3, boosting her up a few positions in 7th overall. “Well that was a very long day!” tweeted Bertold.
Brenda Bowskill, recovering from a DNC yesterday due to a broken mast, displayed improvements on Day two with a 13, 10, moving up to 19th overall. Both sailors have been battling with the top pack and will continue to challenge competitors throughout the week.
Top Canadian Laser sailor is currently Matt Ryder in 24th in the 43 boat fleet.
Racing continues at 10:00am local time tomorrow in Medemblik.
