Tough day on the water for Canadians as the second day of finals wrap up in the breeze and sailors look ahead to the grand finale of Princesa Sofia Regatta on Saturday.
Erin Rafuse and Danielle Boyd fell back to 22nd in the FX today with Canadians Arielle Morgan and Heather Myatt sneaking right behind in 23rd scoring a noteworthy 9,14 on their day. Tomorrow offers their final opportunity to round out their first European event of the season in the top 20.
Nacra team Luke Ramsay and Nikola Girke slid back to 18th today with untimely breakages in two of their races. Despite slipping further away from medal race contention, the Canadian duo have strung together four top 10 results over the course of the week and continue to demonstrate top speeds in the very competitive fleet.
Laser sailor Lee Parkhill (featured image by Sailing Energy) is currently the top Canadian in the gold fleet in 40th overall.
Canadians look forward to the final day of gold fleet racing in Palma tomorrow!
