Laser and Radial Fleets Cap Off Senior Championships
August 24, 2016 - Kingston, ON
Today was the final day of racing at the Sail Canada Senior Championships presented by Volvo Cars Canada at CORK OCR. With the skiff and Finn events finishing up earlier this week, only the Laser and Radial fleets remained to compete. Sailors raced in 12-13 knots of breeze from the southwest, and nearly cloudless skies; yet another great day of sailing.
The Lasers were able to complete two races today, amounting to twelve in total. Robert Davis (CAN) of the Canadian Sailing Team held the top spot for the entire event, and earned the gold medal. Justin Norton (CAN) secured a silver medal finish, while Marshall McCann (USA) took the bronze. The Radial fleet finished thirteen races in total, three of which were finished today. Haddon Hughes (USA) was the winner of the event, while Sarah Douglas (CAN) of the CST and Gage Wilson (USA) took second and third place, respectively.
Thank you to Helly Hansen for supplying all of the prizes for the regatta, and also to all of the participants and volunteers who made the event such a success. Tim Irwin, the CORK Regatta Chair, says “there are two key ingredients to a successful regatta. The first is good weather conditions, which we were fortunate to have this week, and the second is great volunteers, which we are lucky to have no shortage of.” We hope to see you again next year!
