Sail-World.com : Laser North Americans and U.S. Singlehanded Championships - Day 3
Laser North Americans and U.S. Singlehanded Championships - Day 3

'Brendan Olthouse of Canada drives his Laser off the windward mark'    Rich Roberts

It's not exactly match racing, but out of 74 entries the Laser class North American Championships hosted by Alamitos Bay Yacht Club comes down to a two-man battle on the final day Sunday: Charlie Buckingham of nearby Newport Beach versus Bruno Fontes of Brazil.

Wait a minute, Brazil is in South America. No matter… several of the top competitors are from outside the continent, reveling in a range of conditions they hope will improve their chances to reach Fontes' home waters for the 2016 Olympics.

The other Charlie Buckingham (his uncle) relaxes between races -  Chris Barnard  


Fontes led after Day one and Buckingham after Day two, then both stumbled slightly with their worst finishes in the light-air first of three races Saturday---eighth and 11th, respectively, which became their throwouts on the scorecard.

Fontes then closed the day with a one - three as Buckingham finished two - five and saw his lead shrink to a single point, 17-18. Their nearest rival, Cy Thompson of the U.S. Virgin Islands, is at 44 points.

'Not so good,' Fontes said of his day, 'but between me and Charlie, I finished ahead of him.'

Buckingham noted, 'I think we're keeping an eye on each other, but there are still three races to go.'

Christine Neville (r.) leads Laser Radials past windward mark on third day of Laser North Americans -  Rich Roberts  


Winds have ranged from a feisty 19 knots Thursday to 11 Friday and building from 7 to 13 Saturday, with a typical steady shift right from south to southwest. The forecast for Sunday looked like Friday.

'We'll take anything,' Buckingham said. 'It's been a range of conditions. The race committee is doing a good job.'

Meanwhile, another Buckingham---Charlie's uncle from Hawaii---is confusing the picture with a credible performance in the middle of the fleet.

In Laser Radials, Paige Railey, a former ISAF world woman sailor of the year from Clearwater, Fla., surged to the top with a second and first for a 20-point lead after discarding her 11th in Saturday's first race. Her top rival, Luke Muller, suffered a breakdown in the second race and was unable to sail the third.

Altogether there are 190 entries from 14 countries in three classes, demanding a quarter-mile-long start line, which has been fairly free of overanxious OCS (on course side) offenders.

Chris Barnard (r.) starts at pin with Charlie Buckingham on his hip -  Rich Roberts  


The event also encompasses US Sailing's U.S. Singlehanded Championship for Americans age 17 and up, which has Buckingham and Chris Barnard---longtime rivals from Newport Beach---as the current two top Olympic hopes in the US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider lineup.

Macey McCann and Gage Wilson share the Laser 4.7 class lead at 14 points, with McCann holding a narrow tiebreaker.

Sunday's fourth and final day of racing is scheduled to start at noon, conditions permitting.

The U.S. Sailing Singlehanded Champions will receive the prestigious George D. O’Day trophy for men and Helen Willis Hanley trophy for women.

Laser 4.7s approach the windward mark -  Rich Roberts  


The men’s Laser and the women’s Laser Radial are Olympic class events; Laser 4.7 features youth participants.

The Laser, a Canadian designed dinghy, is the largest dinghy class in the world with more than 200,000 boats built.

Jack Marshall leads Radials at windward mark -  Chris Barnard
