Laser II World Championship 2005
Ontario, Canada

Trevor and Ian McEWEN took a third on Sunday in race one and a first in the second race of the day in light winds. In the first race of the day on Monday, they again took a bullet but he dropped to fourth position in the second race.
In race five on Monday, the McEwen team worked their way back up the field to take a second place position finish and continued to work their way up to a first place position in race six. Winds have been generally light, but competitors have had a chance to try their sailing skills in all kinds of winds from heavy westerlies to light easterlies and on one day the unusual weather spawned several waterspouts.

Race seven on Wednesday saw McEWEN take a second place finish and race eight , he again showed his skill at the helm, as he and crewmate and brother Ian, further improved their chances of winning the Worlds by finishing first for an overall point standing of 15.

Their nearest rivals, Alex TAYLOR and Bryan MOBBS, of Great Britain hold second place with a total point score of 29, while Can 2255 skippered by Jason KOBRICK holds on to third place with a total point score of 30.

In the top three are two Canadian boats while the British boat , skippered by Alex Taylor, holds on to a one point lead over third place, after eight

races. Ireland is presently in fifth place, while the nearest American boat is in 17th position. The only other nationality represented at the regatta is Mexico, skippered by Pablo Rabago DORBECKER who holds on to 14th place with 102 points.
