Sail-World.com : CII NA Championship and NA YOG Qualifier - Action now underway
CII NA Championship and NA YOG Qualifier - Action now underway

'They’re off! Rahiem Steede BER takes the committee boat end at the start of the first race. He would end up 4th in the race and, with another fourth in the 2nd race, sits in 3rd oveall.'    Byte Class
CII NA Championship and NA YOG Qualifier - Winds swung to the Southeast after several days of prevailing Northeast trades and the competitors were met with challenging conditions in a steady 18 knots gusting to 22. Probably the most difficult ride of the day was the dead run to the start line across the Bay from the Sailing Club!

Ian Barrows ISV (US Virgin Islands) started off in the first race exactly the way he started off in the World Championship in Kingston last August - first at the first mark! He then worked out a huge lead but surrendered it in the end to Kevin Otterdijk AHO (Curacao, Netherlands Antilles) with another Curacao sailor, Eugene Hendrix taking third place.

It looked like it would be the same two going at it for the top two spots again in race 2 but Kevin Otterdijk was OCS. Ian Barows ISV took the top spot, Eugene Hendrix AHO second and third place went to Cuban sailor, Lester Hernandez Martinez.

Top 10:

Ian Barrows ISV
Eugene Hendrix AHO
Rahiem Steede BER
Kalin Hillier BER
Marti Llena ESP*
Dimitri Stevens BER
Lester Hernandez Martinez CUB
Just Van Aanholdt AHO
Oliver Fogerty CAY**
Owen Siese BER
Sarah Douglas CAN leads the women and sits in 11th.

*Marti has already qualified Spain in the European Championship
**Oliver over-age to qualify

Male: ISV, AOH, BER, CUB
Female: CAN, USA, DOM, CUB

Oliver Fogerty CAY before the start . With an 8th and a 10th he sits 9th overall but is too old to qualify for a YOG country spot. -  Byte Class
