Techno 293 North American & Caribbean Continental Championship
Cancun, Mexico

The boys from the USA are hammering the competition with brothers Geronimo and Maximo Nores in first and second and Steven Cramer in third at the Techno 293 North Americans.
The sibling rivalry is intense as it was the day prior with Geronimo and Maximo fighting for top spot. However Cramer pulled himself in to contention by taking four bullets in a row to trail the leading brothers by a narrow margin.

These three podium hoggers are a clear 14 points ahead of their nearest rivals. However, the Windguru forecast for the final day is for stronger winds so the final places are by no means certain. A lot could happen right the way down the fleet as there are some very interesting battles going on. Excitement builds.

First girl Mariana Aguilar is working her way up the overall leaderboard and is now in seventh place whilst Adolfo de la O is holding his own as first junior.

This is a great event, not only the quality of competition but also a wonderful venue for it. Carlos Padilla Becerra, President of the Mexican Olympic Committee commented, "We are lucky that nature has afforded us the luxury of this scenery and, together with a great organisation, international associations and the Mexican Federation, we are looking forward to staging many more events of this type at an international level."

Many kids now are progressing from Techno to the Olympic level. Ricardo Santos from Brazil who is in attendance added, "I love this class, it is amazing to watch them. It is one of the best classes in the sailing world, just like the Optimist. It's nice to watch them race, a really high level, starts are good, lay-line is good, they are all really good sailors. I am happy for them and I think it is amazing when you see 450 sailors at the worlds."
