2022 Star Western Hemisphere Championships at Lake Sunapee Yacht Club - Day 1

by ISCYRA 25 Aug 2022 17:21 PDT 21-27 August 2022

The 2022 Star Western Hemisphere Championship started yesterday with the first race, sailed with very light wind on Sunapee Lake, New Hampshire, USA. Two more races were finished today by the 33 teams attending the championship, mostly from the USA, with three Canadians, a Bahamian and a German boat.

After a little waiting on the water with AP flag up for the light wind, Race 2 started at around 1pm local time, a three-lap course with about 5 knots from North West, led from the beginning by Andy Ivey/Reid Krakower, and followed by Peter Follansbee/Nathalien Cook, both from Lake Sunapee Yacht Club. Star World Champion Eric Doyle with Payson Infelise closed in third, after yesterday's performance below their level (15th).

Race 3 started right after, at 2,30 pm, with very similar conditions. At the first windward mark the locals Peter Follansbee/Nathalien Cook were leading the fleet, but by the gate they had already been overtaken by Stephen Braverman/Ron Rezac from Boston, who were then able to keep the lead until the end. Follansbee/Cook finished second and Allan Cullen/Dave Martin, coming all the way from Vancouver, got third.

Today's bullet in the third race and a couple of good results before it, make Braverman/Cook provisional overall leader of the fleet, followed by Lake Sunapee Ivey/Krakower with John Dane III/Timothy Ray third.

Up to three races are in plan for tomorrow, day three of the competition that will end on Saturday with a Silver Star winning team.

Full results available here.
