Oakcliff International Grade 2 - New Zealand's Will Tiller victorious

'2012 Oakcliff International Grade 2'    Oakcliff Sailing

At the 2012 Oakcliff International Grade 2, Will Tiller and Team Full Metal Jacket sailed to a decisive win in the final over Krzysztof Rosinski of Poland who ended up second and Nicolai Sehested who came in third. Tiller is part of the youngest team in the top 20 on the World Match Racing Circuit.

Tiller was very pleased with his team's performance. 'We are stoked about the win, it is our fifth Grade 2 win in a row,' Tiller remarked after coming off the water. Tiller said he thinks his team is getting a lot more professional and he hopes to carry on their successful performance into their next event, a Grade 1 on the World Match Racing tour in Marseille September 24, 2012.

USVI Skipper Taylor Canfield, who finished fourth in the Oakcliff International Grade 2, is the Grand Slam Match Race Series overall winner. With this win he also received an invitation to the 2013 Grade 1 Congressional Cup held in Long Beach California. Ann and David Murray, Chair of the 49 year old Congressional Cup was on site to present the invitation.

2012 Oakcliff International Grade 2 -  Oakcliff Sailing  
This Grand Slam series features ISAF Grade 2 match racing in four consecutive events: the Invitational, held at CMRC August 17-19; the Detroit Cup, held August 23-25 at Bayview YC; the Knickerbocker Cup, held at Manhasset Bay YC August 30 - September 2; and the Oakcliff International. Canfield, 23 is the current sailing director at Chicago Match Race Center and ranked 15th in the open ISAF rankings.

With semis, finals and a consolation round robin for places 5-8 scheduled the conditions on day four challenged everyone. Light and variable winds forced multiple course changes and put race management was under pressure.  One match in each were completed early in the day but with the wind dying quickly the second match of the semis had to be abandoned. 

The Race Committee established a 1:30pm time limit after which they would not start any more semifinal races and move on to finals and petite finals. The breeze finally filled in at around five knots and with less than an hour before the final time limit, they were able to complete two races in the finals, semis and consolation round robin.
