Yngling North American Championship 2007
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA

The world #2 team of Sarah AYTON, Sarah WEBB and Pippa WILSON (GBR) finished top of the pile at the ISAF Grade C1 Yngling North American Championship, beating Miami winners Sally BARKOW, Carrie HOWE and Debbie CAPOZZI (USA) to the gold medal on Biscayne Bay.

Added to their second place at the ISAF Grade 1 Rolex Miami OCR a week earlier, AYTON, WEBB and WILSON are piling the pressure on the world #1 crew of Monica AZON, Sandra AZON and Graciela PISONERO (ESP) for the next release of the ISAF World Sailing Rankings on Wednesday 7 February.

Athens gold medallists AYTON and WEBB and new crew WILSON took the title with a fantastic finish in Miami, going 3,1,2,2,3 in the final five races to win by nine points. Having beaten the Brits to gold in the Medal Race just a week ago, BARKOW, HOWE and CAPOZZI came in second, with an OCS in race 7 proving to be a costly mistake.

Close Battle For Third

Vlada ILIENKO, Ekaterina KOVALENKO and Nina SHTROMBERGER (RUS) won the final race of the series to take third place overall on countback from Silja LEHTINEN, Maria KLEMETZ and Livia VARESMAA (FIN) and Anna BASALKINA, Vladislava UKRAINTSEVA and Ekaterina MAXIMOVA (RUS).

Athens Europe gold medallist Siren SUNDBY (NOR), back in the Olympic Classes after a near two-year break, finished the series strongly to come in seventh overall with crew Lise Birgitte FREDRIKSEN and Alexandra KOEFOED (NOR).

The Yngling North American Championship is taking place as part of the Winter Circuit surrounding the ISAF Grade 1 Rolex Miami OCR.
