Western Hemisphere & Orient Championship – Day 2

San Diego, September 9, 2014 Report by Carol Cronin

Interview: Raul Rios

Day 2 for the Westerns was a more classic San Diego day than expected.

We towed out to the ocean and the wind came up as usual around 11am, but the RC was forced to postpone after a Navy ship anchored (apparently for practice) right where the windward mark needed to go. A bit of local color…

Once racing began the left paid for the first beat, but after that it was a race to the right. In spite of the close to normal conditions, the locals weren’t the one to figure it out the best, and Raul Rios/Fernando Monilor (PUR) now hold a 2 point lead over Breno Bianchi/Flavio de Castro (BRA).

After racing, teams were welcomed at a variety of homes near the Yacht Club for heavy appetizers and beverages. It was a great chance to make some new Snipe friends, and watch the just past full moon rising over the city and harbor. More racing tomorrow!

1. (PUR) Raul Rios & Fernando Monilor, 14

2. BRA Breno Bianchi & Flavio de Castro, 16

3. ARG Luis Soubie & Diego Mini Lipszyc, 21
