Etchells World Championship - Hardesty on top of the leaderboard

'2014 Etchells Worlds, NYYC
Newport, RI'    Sharon Green/New York Yacht Club

On day three of the Etchells World Championship 2014, hosted by the New York Yacht Club at Harbour Court in association with Sail Newport, Bill Hardesty’s resilience has brought him and his crew of Taylor Canfield, Stephanie Roble and Marcus Eagan to the top of the leader board despite a heavy downpour and fluky winds.

Newport, RI -  Sharon Green/New York Yacht Club  

After a two-hour postponement on shore followed by another two hours on the water, storm clouds gathered, the wind velocity increased and the wind direction settled down enough to allow Race five to start. Shortly after that, the rain began, so forceful at times the weather mark was obscured. Those who sailed to the right, toward the squall, fared better and rounded the weather mark in the lead, albeit a bit wetter for their efforts. The wind shifted left throughout the race dropping slightly in velocity. Senet Bischoff and Ben Kinney won Race five by a healthy margin with Hardesty finishing fourth, giving him a nine-point lead over Hank Lammens, who finished 16th in today’s race. Marvin Beckman sits in third overall followed by John Bertrand in fourth and Ante Razmilovic rounding out the top five.
