Western Hemisphere & Orient Championship – Day 4

San Diego, September 11, 2014. Report by Carol Cronin

With a 2,5 today, Luis Soubie/Diego Mini Lipszyc (ARG) moved into the lead. So far this team is the only one not to fall out of the top ten, and with two races to go and one more drop race kicking in tomorrow, they are very close to clinching the championship.

Today’s racing moved back into South Bay for 2 races in 10-14 knots and flat water, a big transition from ocean sailing. Andrew Pimental/Nikki Bruno (USA) won the day with a 1,3, which jumped them up the standings to 11th overall. Only three other teams (besides Soubie/Lipszyc) posted two top ten finishes, showing the difficulty we all had being consistent in such a tight fleet.

Tonight is an open night for teams, and a bonfire on the Shelter Island beach is planned.

Tomorrow we head back to the ocean for the final two races. The forecast is very similar to today, so one more day of hiking hard before we all head home!
