BC native Al Clark, Head Coach at Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, has captured the 2013 Laser Standard Masters World Champion Title! Al Clark, (pictured top middle) sailed to victory in close competition with Arould Hummel of the Netherlands over a series of 11 races. 'It was stressful the entire regatta as the conditions forced you to go to the edges of the course' explains Clark, 'It made covering very tough.'

Fighting for position until the final race by just one point, Al managed to surpass Hummel on the downwind legs, 'In the end I had speed downwind, so I stayed close on the upwind legs and waited for my chance on the run.'

Clark plans on competing at the World Championships again in Hyeres, France next October. Clark was also the Radial World Masters Champion in 2011. Event Sail Canada
