Miami OCR - Canadians dominate leaderboard in Laser Class!

Sailors were treated to some decent breeze today and the scoreboard reflects more than decent results for the Canadians. The Canadian Olympic Laser trials have turned up another notch as David Wright (RCYC) and Chris Dold (RCYC) sail their hearts out to earn their spot in London 2012! Their work is definitely paying off as they hold down 2 of 3 podium positions after 3 days of racing.

Wright moves to the top of the leaderboard today with a 1, 2 despite making a mistake at the first top mark and losing 5 boats, David worked his way back up to the front the fleet by the bottom mark and retained the lead for the win. Wright moved up today ahead of GBR's Paul Goodison.

Dold, currently in third place position, sailed a great up wind in his first race. In the second race he had a yellow flag off the line, worked the left side of the course and was in 13th at the first mark, moved up to ninth at the reach mark, seventh at the bottom mark, and missed out on third place at the finish line by half a boat length! CYA's National Team coach Erik Stibbe is thrilled with both of their performances thus far. 'Fantastic sailing from both David & Chris. It is really nice to see these guys sail as good as they are when it matters'.

There was lots of action on all the other courses in Miami with the Star team Clarke/Bjorn sitting in 10th, 49er team Cook/Lowden still maintain their lead in sixth overall, followed closely by Ladha/Inkpen in seventh.

Finn sailor Greg Douglas (RCYC) improved his standings after a 3, 3 on the day to move up to fifth, followed closely by fellow CDN's Brendan Wilton (RNSYS) and Martin Robitaille (RCYC) in sixth and seventh respectively.

For the RSX Men, David Hayes (RCYC) sailed a consistent 5, 5 while Dominique Vallee (CMV) scored a 2,5 on the women's course.

Canadian Sonar team Millar/Campbell/Lutes (RVicYC/Sask) put up a bullet on race 6, moving them up to seventh overall. SKUD team McRoberts/Louttit (RVicYC) also had a solid day on the water with a 3, 2, sitting just outside podium position in fourth.

Canadian Match Racing team led by Sharon Ferris Choat won two races against the US and SWE.

Great day on the water for Canadians!
