J24 World Championship
Kingston, Ontario

Racing today on the inner (Alpha) course just outside the Portsmouth Olympic Harbour. The cold front that passed through yesterday left a shifty north wind that was expected to die as the day progressed.

The inner course provided flat water and some shore effects that made for big gains and losses in today's races. Canadian sailor, Rudy Wolfs said, "The conditions were nothing like typical Kingston sailing. The locals were stumped on which way to go."

Race one was started under the "I" flag after a couple of general recalls in nice 8-10 knot winds and overcast skies. The lead boats made both the right and left corners pay while working the middle seemed not to work well. Toronto sailors David Shaver and Todd Irving (CAN) broke out to lead the fleet around the course and take first and second respectively. Several of the early regatta leaders found themselves back in the pack in this race.

Winds continued to die, and race two was started in 5-8 knots under clearing skies. Again the corners paid with the left side (closer to the shore) showing the most consistent gains. With the clearing skies and dying winds, the race was shortened to finish on the final downwind leg. Mike Ingham (USA) of Rochester, NY took the bullet and his teams 5,1 on the day was enough to boost him to second place overall in the regatta behind former world champion, Brad Read (USA).

In other news, team USA defeated team Canada in the street hockey finals by a score of 3 goals to 2.
