All Images Charlotte Regatta FB - Former Nacra 17 teammates and now skippers each in the F18 and Nacra 17 , Sarah Newberry & John Casey, are leading the 2015 North Americans in 1st & 2nd place with 6 & 8pts respectively. Pilon & Loiselle keep 3rd overall and 2014 Champs Easton & Burd climb to 4th after a dns yesterday on rig failure.
Sarah & Matthew Whitehead have score 1,3,1 for the day and John & Colin Page 3,1,2 for a close fight for the top place and a good gap with the rest for the moment.
Good to see how a mixed crew can compete one on one in the breeze with open pairs. We already had Carolijn Brouwer in the past showing her Class, but now this shows that there is no reason whatsoever to maintain mandatory Mixed crews for next Olympics. In fact, I think many will stay mixed, but we will have the chance to see even more crews going for the Olympic dream.
Casey will attend his annual St Barth Catacup in November after this, two Argentine crew who were present at the 2014 F18 North Americans will join him for the first time. Check entries at stbarthcatacup.com
