Laser North American Championships Final Series – Day 1
by Marianne Davis on 28 Jul 2013
The Final Series of the North American Championships got underway today, 27th July. Trying to beat the weather for the day, all fleets started their day an hour earlier. A great call by the race committee getting good races in and keeping the volunteers and the sailors dry.
