  #

Sarah Steyaert of France has won the 2008 Women's Laser Radial World Championship after a sensational finish to the regatta when Lijia Xu of China was disqualified from the final race ultimately costing her the world title. The six day regatta concluded off Takapuna, North Shore City, Auckland today.

Steyaert had an excellent day on the water, lying third at the start of the day she won race nine of the championship this morning and then placed 5th in the final race which was enough to secure her the title. It is Steyaert's first ever world title and far and away her best World Championships result, her previous best being a 6th place in 2006.

Stout Takes Top Prize at San Diego NOOD

  #
By Stuart Streuli

This will not be a comforting realization for the International 14 sailors who struggled to keep their boats upright during Saturday's windy conditions at the 2008 Sperry Top-Sider San Diego NOOD Regatta.

Charlie McKee, who skippered a borrowed boat to a dominating win in the 16-boat class, hadn't sailed an International 14 in nearly a decade until the day before the event.

Rolex Miami OCR

  #
After today's short 30-minute "Medal Race" in each of four Olympic classes (Laser, Laser Radial, Star and Yngling), US SAILING's Rolex Miami OCR officially concluded. The regatta, an ISAF Grade 1 world ranking event that attracts elite sailors as well as up-and-comers, hosted 369 sailors from 34 countries and yesterday crowned champions in three Paralympic classes (SKUD-18, Sonar and 2.4mR). The awarding of gold, silver and bronze medals in those classes were based on scores from fleet racing that began last Monday for everyone; however, because of a new sailing format that will debut at the 2008 Olympic Games in Qingdao, China, the Olympic-class sailors stayed on for an extra day. Fleet racing scores determined these classes' top-ten sailors, who then advanced to the medal-racing round, which counted double in the scoring and acutely effected strategy plays for medals.

Day 65: Temenos II flying along

  #
ImageThe fastest boat in the Barcelona World Race over the last 24 hours has been Temenos II, who have taken advantage of stronger conditions to add to their narrow lead over Mutua Madrileña. Temenos II has made good 358 miles over the last 24 hours, 87 more than the Spanish boat chasing them.

“For the moment the wind is quite calm, 20 knots and the sea is quite choppy so we are not very, very fast,” said Dominique Wavre on Temenos II this afternoon. “But we did a good job yesterday with high speed and good wind and we really used the power of Temenos II. We managed to hold onto a little stream of air for longer than Mutua Madrileña.”

Fog Fails to Foil Racers

  #

Fog mixed with rain dampened the air but not the racing atmosphere at the Storm Trysail Club's Block Island Race Week XXII presented by Rolex. After yesterday's around-the-island race, the event's 2000 sailors competing on 183 boats were anxious to get back to buoy racing to add bulk to their score lines. Though the southwest winds generally blew lightly, the race committee managed two races for 17 of 18 classes on three courses: White (One-Design), Red (IRC) and Blue (PHRF).

Though the first-ever Rolex US-IRC National Championship will be decided this week, competition in the one-design classes is every bit as intense. more...
