Day three at the Delta Lloyd Regatta in Medemblick sees the lightest conditions thus far with wind slowly circling from east to north east over the course of the day. Our Canadian Sonar sailors, Bruce Millar, Logan Campbell and Scott Lutes were out for two races today in the light breeze, fighting through the first race with a 3rd place finish. In the second race the guys took a chance after a great start, going right on the course into some sturdier air.
Tacking back, they rode a lift but took it too far, totally crossing the course and being left behind at the first mark. Damage control ensued and the guys were the 7th boat over the line in the end. So far the threesome has racked up a 5th place overall.
The 2.4m fleet set out into the lack luster wind, only to be sent back in due to light conditions. They left the dock again later in the day, giving Paul Tingley the chance to sail a 6th place finished followed by a 4th place, moving him up to 5th overall for the regatta.
In the sizeable laser fleet, Tom Ramshaw passed Robert Davis on the overall score board, ending the day in 15th overall, four places ahead of Davis who sits at 19th. Our other Canadian boys are sticking close together at the trailing end of the fleet, Heinzemann, Martin and Mclaughlin finished the day in 30th, 31st, and 32nd respectively.
