Two more races were completed in the 2014 Lightning Youth World Championship today. The top three teams from yesterday showed consistency through the first race today. Team Rondina from Brazil kept up their winning streak with another bullet. Team Lutz from the USA and Team Lorca from Chile finished two, three to tie for second place.

In the second race Team Huyard from USA lead around the first two marks but was passed by Team Lutz to take the race three win. Team T. Probst from the USA finished in third. Team Chile was called OSC and went back to restart and made it back to 15th.

After three races Americans Jonathan Lutz, Alexandra Jones and Nicholas Sertl show that consistency pays and are in first place with six points. Felipe Rondina, Jose Afonso Hackerott and Thomas Sylvestre from Brazil are in second with 10 points. Tanner Probst, Maya Webber and Robert Sawyer from the USA are tied for third with the Canadian Family team of Robbie Robinson, Paige Robinson and Dan Robinson with 19 points. One point behind them in fifth place is Rebecca Huyard, Sean Adelhelm and Liam McCarthy from the USA with 20 points.

After racing sailors enjoyed a pizza party at the MacDonald's home and then are taking a bus trip to see Niagara Falls. Strong winds coupled with rain are forecasted for tomorrow. Racing is scheduled to begin with a 1000 warning gun.

The Lightning Youth Worlds provides an opportunity for young sailors 19 and under to meet, compete and create long-lasting friendships and connections to this International Class. The boats are provided, housing is provided, and although the level of competition is top-notch, the fun is abundant.

Taming the beast-a conversation with Stuart Meurer of Parker Hannifin

If you watched videos of the AC72s racing in the 34th America’s Cup (2013), you’re familiar with the mind-boggling speeds that are possible when wingsail-powered catamarans switch from displacement sailing to foiling mode. While foiling is fast, there’s no disguising the platform’s inherent instability. Now, Oracle Team USA has teamed up with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way.
