sail-world.com -- Isabella Bertold named Sailor of the Month for October

Isabella Bertold named Sailor of the Month for October    
Tue, 5 Nov 2013

Though a number boats were being hauled out at the local yacht clubs across the country, many dedicated sailors continued their on-water battles both in Canada and afar during the month of October.

Royal Hamilton Yacht Club kicked off the month with a bang, capturing the Shark World Championship title in Robel/Muritz, Germany. Using a borrowed boat provided by the host club, the skipper Kevin Piper, crew Tom Nelson, and Jordan Clark secured the win after nine races and a tie breaker against Austria.

In Montreal, members of the Queen's University Sailing Team captured the CICSA National Team Racing Championship for the third year in a row, right on the heels of their CICSA National Fleet Racing and Match racing Championship victories held in New York (NYYC). These dominating performances predicate Queens University as the leading force in Canadian Intercollegiate sailing.

The NYYC also played host to the Laser and Radial Masters North Americans this month where Canadian Andy Roy picked up fourth overall, and Nigel Heath placed fifth overall on the Radial side of the course.

Team Henri Lloyd, led by Canadian Skipper Eric Holden, is enjoying success at the top of the leaderboard this month with a three point lead over Great Britain after three legs of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. Leg 4 begins on Monday November 4th.

CST sailor Isabella Bertold travelled overseas early in the month to compete at the 2013 Radial Women's World Championships in Rizhao, China. Bertold sailed quite consistently and posted a personal best result of seventh, beating out the 2012 Olympic medallists and ranking an impressive fifth in the world according to ISAF standings. This accomplishment earns Isabella Bertold the recognition of Sail Canada 'Sailor of the Month' for the third time this year! Congratulations to Isabella!

Sail Canada's Sailor of the Month award acknowledges sailing achievements by Canadians involved or associated with the sport in all its forms. Sail Canada encourages the submission of noteworthy Canadian sailing activities to sailorofthemonth@sailing.ca.
