Cork OCR - Sail Canada Senior Nationals wrap up

'2014 Cork OCR'    CORK
The Sail Canada Senior Nationals wrapped up today at CORK OCR after five days of racing in the Kingston harbour. Racing took place for all fleets despite being plagued by more light wind.

It was show time on the skiff course as the 49er and 49erFX fleets moved to the stadium course for theater style racing. These races are fast paced and tight, with a target time of only 10 minutes. In 49er racing CST members David Mori and Justin Barnes (RCYC) kept the lead they had going into the day and came out first overall. Michael Brodeur and Dan Inkpen held on to second and John and Arthur Ferguson (RCYC) finished third.

The final set of races were much tighter on the 49erFX course, with final placing being determined on the last downwind leg of the last race. In the end Arielle Morgan and Heather Myatt (RSTLYC) held on to their lead and took first place by two points. Erin Berry and Ingrid Merry (RCYC/RVicYC) finished second, followed by Erin Rafuse and Danielle Boyd (RNSYS/KYC) in third.

The final day of racing was tight on the Radial course. Leader Brenda Bowskill (RCYC) was able to maintain a narrow lead overConnor Blouin (DIYC) through the first two races of the day, putting the pressure on for the final race. In the end Blouin was forced over the line in the final start and was scored OCS, allowing Bowskill to secure her place on top of the podium. Final results areBrenda Bowskill (RCYC), Connor Blouin (DIYC) and Claire Merry (RCYC). Bowskill and Merry are both Canadian Sailing Team members.

In the Laser fleet the winner was decided earlier in the day with Cy Thompson (St. Thomas YC) securing his win after the first of the three race sailed. CST members Robert Davis (RCYC) and Tom Ramshaw (SLYC) finish second and third.

There was tight racing all week in the Finn fleet between Canadian Team sailors Greg Douglas (RCYC) and Martin Robitaille(RCYC/CVL). Douglas held his lead and finished on top of the podium, followed by Robitaille and training partner Kyle Martin (RVanYC).

As always the event was made possible thanks to a huge number of supporters and volunteers who dedicate their time – thank you to all!
