Imagine you are a Southern Ocean Wave?


Miami Olympic Classes Regatta

Day 2 of the regatta was sailed in light and variable conditions.  Because of the unpredictably it was a real results scrambler.

The Europe class is still led by Soren Jonnsen of Denmark.  The top USA sailor is Amanda Clark in 3rd with 16 points.  Courtney Dey is 5th with 21 points.

The USA's Mark Herrman continues to be at the top of the Finn fleet with 9 points.  3rd is held by American Eric Oetgan with 18 points.  

The Laser fleet has a new leader, Karl Sunsen of Sweden.  1st day leader Mark Mendenblatt of the USA is 2nd 8 points back.  Mendenblatt was 14th in the first race, but scored a victory in the 2nd contest.

John Lovell and Charlie Ogletree are leading the Tornados.  Tied for 2nd are the teams of Guck and Schaffer and Daniel/Bernier.  Guck/Shcafer had the best day placing 2nd and 1st.

The Star fleet completed only one race.  Spain is 1st, followed by boats from: Great Britain, Canada, Germany and Italy.  Top US boat is Macausland and Iverson in 6th.  1st day leaders Reynold and Liljerdahl fell to 10th with a finish of 38th.  In 15th is the current world champion team of Doyle and Olsen after a 36th place finish.

Forecasted conditions for day 3 are winds from the east at 10-15 knots.  However, at 0900 Miami showed only 3 knots of wind so it could be another taxing day for the Olympic class sailors.
