After a day of no racing, Team USA wasted no time climbing the leaderboard today at the Pan Am Games, with four of the 13 classes in first overall, and five more classes in the top three.

All classes took to the Pacific in big swell and winds 12-15 knots gusting to 20. Erika Reineke and Daniela Moroz won every race in the ILCA 6 and Women's Kite, respectively; whilefour other classes moved up the standings.

Highlights*:

  • Daniela Moroz won all four races in the Women's Formula Kite, moved into 1st overall
  • Erika Reineke won all three races in the ILCA 6, remained in 1st overall
  • Ian Barrows and Hans Henken (49er) moved into 1st overall with a 2-1-1 scoreline for the day
  • Allan Terhune, Sarah Chin, and Madeline Baldridge (Lightning) wrapped their first day of racing in 1st overall with a 2-1-2 scoreline
  • Noah Lyons moved from 3rd to 2nd overall in the Men's iQFOiL
  • Dominique Stater moved from 4th to 3rd in the Women's iQFOiL
*Awaiting further score updates in a few classes.

"The swell was the biggest I've ever seen or sailed in," said Erika Reineke, winner of all ILCA 6 day three races. "On the upwinds it feels like the boat loads and unloads in an aggressive and extreme way. On the downwinds it feels loose at moments but once you catch a big swell it's like riding a wave for eternity."

On the mend from an injury, Reineke has been putting in the work at the gym and in physical therapy to prepare for her Olympic circuit regattas and upcoming Trials. "I've definitely put a lot of work in since my injury at the beginning of the year," said Erika. "I think I'm just starting to see the months of consistency begin to work. There's still heaps to go, though, and I'm looking forward to keeping on riding this progression."
