Laser North American Championships

The Laser North American Championships were held in my hometown of Kingston, Ontario July 25-28.

Kingston did not deliver its typical seabreeze, but rather provided a tricky mix of inconsistent wind which made for very tough racing. I sailed a solid series, but made a few mistakes at key times in the qualifying series which cost me valuable points. I sailed a better final series, winning the last day to take 3rd overall, losing the tie-break with the 2nd place boat. Canada swept the podium and took the top 4 positions in the regatta.
