Canadian windsurfers perform in Weymouth!
Olympic medal racing is set to begin tomorrow in Weymouth in the Finn and Star classes; unfortunately, our Canadian team members will be watching from the sideline after failing to qualify in the top 10 to participate in the medal race. A particular difficult predicament for the Clarke and Bjorn duo since the Star class will not be present at the Rio games in 2016. Medal races will be available on the CTV 2012 Olympics on-line World Feed channels; the mounting battle between Finn racers Ainslie and Hogh-Christensen promises to be exciting!

Racing continues this week-end in the other classes and our windsurfers are looking good with mixed results that include a fourth place in the challenging Weymouth conditions; both Nikola Girke and Zac Plavsic are currently sitting in eight place. Stay on top of all results with our daily Olympics newsletter.

With so much attention on the Olympics, Halvard Mabire's recent achievement in the Transat Québec St-Malo was easily overlooked; the skipper of Campagne de France is the only person to ever win a second consecutive Transat event. Mabire topped off his 2012 win with a new Class 40 record for the race. In the Open Class, FenêtréA Cardinal 3 skippered by Erwan Leroux secured first place earlier this week while Georges Lablanc's Canadian team on the 65' Océan Phénix is bringing the rear after suffering multiple technical difficulties along the way.
