US Olympic Trials
Miami, Florida

With a forecast for wind at half the strength it was on day one on Biscayne Bay, the 22 teams of Star sailors competing in the 2004 US Olympic Team Trials-Sailing got in two solid races on a Sunday afternoon that couldn't have been more perfect.
Winds on the course ranged from 9-11 knots during the two races that were held in the same vicinity of the Bay as yesterday - four miles south of the Coral Reef Yacht Club Channel.

Paul CAYARD and Phil TRINTER finished 1-2 yesterday to leapfrog from fourth overall yesterday into the leader's spot in the overall scoring. They now hold first place on 11 points.

Eric DOYLE and crew Brian SHARP were over early at the first start of the day and found themselves racing to catch-up after re-starting. They ultimately finished ninth in that race, and followed with an eighth-place finish in the second race. That performance dropped them out of the lead position in the overall scoring to second overall with 19 points.

John MACAUSLAND and Brad NICHOL moved up to third overall on finishes of 3-6 to net 23 points. Following them, one point back, are Olympic medalists Mark REYNOLDS and Steve ERICKSON who placed 10-7, dropping one spot in the overall standings to fourth.

Making up for the OCS they earned on day one, Vince BRUN and Mike DORGAN finished 2-1 yesterday for a net 35 points. They are tied on points with Howie SHIEBLER and Will STOUT, who finished sixth in the first race, but were then OCS in the second race. They paid for that second race, dropping from second to eighth overall.
