Laser Midwinters West 2006
San Diego, California, USA

Over the weekend the Mission Bay Yacht Club in San Diego, California, USA hosted the ISAF Grade 2 Laser Midwinters West. 17 year old Royce WEBER (USA) took the Laser title by the narrowest of margins, whilst victory in the Laser Radial went to number nine in the ISAF World Sailing Rankings Victoria CROWDER (CAN).
Over 150 sailors took to the waters of San Diego to contest the Midwinters, with the Laser competition marked by very close competition at the front. 2005 ISAF Youth Worlds USA representative WEBER led Brendan FAHEY (USA) by a single point going into the final race, with Fred STRAMMER (USA) just one point back in third place. Despite falling behind FAHEY, WEBER kept a cool head to come in fourth to his rival's third, whilst STRAMMER took fifth. This gave WEBER the title on countback, thanks to his two bullets in races two and five.

CROWDER In Control

Amongst the Laser Radials, CROWDER was a more comfortable winner, recovering from a poor first race to post four top five finishes in a row. She took the women's crown ahead of Isabella BERTOLD (CAN) and Haley MCLEAN (CAN).
