Canada leads the scoreboard at the NYYC Invitational!

Perfect racing conditions have prevailed on Narragansett Bay for Day 1 and 2 of the New York Yacht Club Invitational Cup where the Royal Canadian Yacht Club team, led by skipper Terry McLaughlin is leading the scoreboard after 6 races. Racing continues until Saturday for an anticipated total of 15 races and Canada hopes to be flying the gold spinnaker awarded to the current leader for the remainder of those races. Consistency appears to be the secret weapon to remain on top; Canada has posted top-4 finishes on the first two days so far. Live race tracking by Kattack is available daily from 11:00am at http://invitationalcup.org/tracking

The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race 2011-2012 third race, from Rio De Janeiro to Cape Town, is currently underway; after four days of light air racing in the Southern Atlantic, the first ever Dutch team, De Lage Langen is holding on to a short lead as they make their way to the scoring gate. The fleet is now fanning out with some entries trying to find better breeze by staying south, at the risk of missing the scoring gate altogether.

Artemis Racing is leading at the America's Cup World Series in Plymouth. As expected, challenging have prevailed earlier in the week and have put the crews through some of the most exciting racing so far. The great news today is a third place finish for China Team, two days after their disastrous capsize on Tuesday. A phenomenal amount of work went in to the boat to replace the wing which was destroyed by the impact of the crash and ensure they were on the start line the next day.

Racing was canceled today at the Conde de Godó - Barcelona Trophy Audi MedCup event because of lack of wind. Everyone is on pin and needles in this fifth and last race of the series that will determine the overall winner, where four boats are still in contention: Quantum Racing (USA), Bribon (ESP), Container (GER) and Audi Azurra (ITA). One thing is certain, anything can happen between now and the end of the day on Saturday. You can watch the excitement on Audi TV MedCup.

Congratulations to Gary Tisdale on First Today from Youngstown, NY for their win at the Beneteau First 36.7 North American Championships. Best Canadian entry was second place Richard Reid on Zingara from event host the National Yacht Club. 29 boats participated in the prestigious event; half of them from Canada where the fleet is quite popular.

Last week, we briefly introduce the upcoming Transat Jacques-Vabre on the offshore scene; today, we present the Global Ocean Race which starts in 10 days in Mallorca, Spain. The event, created by Josh Hall as the Portimao GOR in 2008, is reserved for Class40 yachts; 6 double-handed teams will race around the world with stops in Cape Town, South Africa, Wellington, New Zealand, Punta del Este, Uruguay and Charleston, USA before returning to Mallorca for a total of approximately 30,000 nautical miles. The Class40 yacht was created a few years ago as an affordable new offshore vessel capable of high performance using traditional materials and design; as a result, the entry level is accessible to a much wider range of skippers.

This week-end will see Kingston, ON play host the 2011 CORK Fall Regatta and Great Lakes Championship for Laser and Radial. All the details at www.cork.org

Stay safe on the water!
