Maxi Soh scores double wins in CMRC Summer Doubleheader

'Team Red Dot in action in yesterday's light air - Chicago Match Race Center's Summer Invitational doubleheader 2014'    Hamish Hardy

Chicago Match Race Center's Summer Invitational doubleheader 2014 - Chicago, IL - Maximillian Soh and his Team Red Dot crew of Justin Wong, Russell Kan, and Andrew Chan from Singapore have just won back to back Grade Three events at the Chicago Match Race Center's Summer Invitational doubleheader. CMRC member Steven Lowery from Highland Park, IL was the runner up in the 12-team event this weekend and also finished second in the overall double-header.

After a fitful first day of racing in a weak southwest breeze, CMRC founder Don Wilson prevailed with a perfect four-zero record, tying him with Soh. The dying breeze eventually caved in completely, yielding only six and a half flights with two matches abandoned on the first day of the event. Lowery finished the day with a three-one record, as did Magnus Sandberg from Canada.

A new day today brought wind and skies that looked more promising, starting out sunny with a perfect 8-10 knot breeze from the west-northwest. By Noon the wind had picked up to a consistent 20 knots with gusts pushing to over 30, forcing race managers to impose a no-spinnaker restriction for the day's remaining flights.

The ideal conditions in the morning produced tight racing, with lots of luffs on the downwind legs as leaders tried to defend their positions, trailing teams brought fresh breeze down the track. As conditions became more tumultuous, the more experienced teams prevailed, with Soh, Lowery and Wilson rising to the top ranks in the standings, with the lowest-ranked underdog, Clinton Hayes from San Francisco, managing to stay ahead of the rest of the pack on an impressive eight-three record.

Despite today's strong breeze, the long postponement yesterday prevented more racing beyond the Round Robin today, so no knockout stage could be sailed and the standings form the Round Robin became the final results.

Soh's achievement earned him invitations to both the Chicago Grand Slam, first event on the four-event ISAF Grade 2 US Grand Slam series, and the last event of this series, the Oakcliff International Grade 2 event in Oyster Bay, New York.
