Canadian Optimist Championship 2005
Halifax,Nova Scotia, Canada

Day three of the Canadian Optimist Championships showed competitors why Nova Scotia offers some of the best sailing conditions on the continent.
Under blue skies with winds that grew steadily through the day to blow at 10 to 15 knots, athletes in the championship fleet finished five races. It was a long and hard day, as sailors raced for seven hours before calling it a day.

It was a welcome day of competition for the fleet, which didn't get any races in on the first day and could only finish two races on the second day. The light winds and fog that hampered the first two days of the regatta disappeared much to the enthusiasm of the young sailors.

Tied for first place in the championship fleet are Jean Luc ROBITALLE from ANBB, Quebec, and Ted MURPHY of the host club, Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron. In third is Morgan MEGARRY from the Royal Hamilton Yacht Club.

The green fleet, which is for less experienced athletes, finished four races on day three. The fleet races a shorter course and has been able to complete ten races so far.

In first place in the green fleet is Alexander MANN from the Lunenburg Yacht Club. Devan Dube is in second and Henry MACHUM in third. Both sailors are from the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron.

Today is the last day of racing with the awards ceremony scheduled for five Wednesday evening at the Squadron.
