Raul Rios and Edgar Diminisch win Snipe North Americans for 2nd year

by Katie Nicoll on 18 Sep 2012
Sailors pull up on the beach of Etobicoke yacht Club - 2012 Snipe North Americans Katie Nicoll

It came down to the wire this afternoon at the 2012 Snipe North Americans, held at the Etobicoke Yacht Club in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, between Raul Rios and Ernesto Rodriguez. After two days of light winds, an 8-10 knot SE breeze filled in nicely for sailors from four countries on the waters of Lake Ontario. Up to that point, winds had been light and variable with significant shifts for the past two days of racing.

PRO, Irene McNeil, guessed correctly on the shifts, and was able to set six good courses in the tough conditions to make the fleet of 23 boats very happy. In the end, Ernesto and Raul finished with tied scores, only to be broken by the last race, which Raul Rios and Edgar Diminisch won. Finishing in third, with very consistent races was Carol Cronin, followed by Jim Bowers in fourth, and Alexandre Tinoco Do Amaral.

The coordination between the Kiel Week race organizers and the weather expert Dr. Meeno Schrader is working well. The meteorologist with a diploma had already recommended on Sunday evening to postpone the starts on Monday, the organizers did follow his advice and this was dead right. The sailors did have an easy stat on their third race day, and when they were sent out on the water around midday, they could still work off an intense regatta day.
