U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Sailing (ILCA 6 and ILCA 7) - Day 3

by US Sailing Team 19 Feb 16:48 PST 15-24 February 2024

Dark and stormy gave way to bright and shifty for day three of U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Sailing. Gale force winds held competitors ashore in the morning, but race committee fired the horn for the first start at 1300. PRO Tom Duggan and his team from across the country and Coconut Grove Sailing Club caught up on racing, running three races rather than the usual two.

Large ocean swell left over from yesterday's storms paired with a 10-15 knot northwest shore breeze made for challenging conditions for competitors. Leaders in the ILCA 6 and 7 adapted quickly, keeping a hold of their respective fleets.

In the ILCA 6, Charlotte Rose won two of today's three races to extend her lead on second place Erika Reineke, now separated by five points. Christina Sakellaris capitalized on the day, moving up to third from fourth overall and seven points away from Reineke.

Marshall McCann and Leo Boucher briefly tied for first place today after ILCA 7 race five, but Ford McCann returned to the lead after race six to hold first for a third day in a row. Marshall and Leo are in close pursuit with 19 and 21 points, respectively, to Ford's 16.

Day four tomorrow will welcome competitors for a first warning at 1100, and both fleets are on track for a reserve day on Wednesday, February 21 for a much-needed day off in a long regatta.

Top 5 in each class after day three:

  • ILCA 6 - Charlotte Rose (9), Erika Reineke (14), Christina Sakellaris (21), Lilly Myers (23), Hallie Schiffman (39)
  • ILCA 7 - Ford McCann (16), Marshall McCann (19), Leo Boucher (21), Chapman Petersen (27), Clay Johnson (30)
