J24 World Championship

A cold front moved through southern Canada yesterday morning bringing rain and cooler temperatures to Kingston. The race committee postponed on shore as the forecast called for winds to shift 180 degrees to the north as the front passed.
As predicted the front moved through, ushering in beautiful (but shifty) sailing conditions with sunny skies and 10-12 knots winds. Forty degree shifts were the order of the day and staying in phase was challenging in the offshore north wind.

After two general recalls the fleet got away under a black flag start. Patrick Toole (USA) of Santa Barbara, California finished first, followed by Yon Belausteguigoitia (MEX) and Tim Healy (USA). Shifty conditions continued for race two with several 30 to 40 degree shifts on the windward legs keeping the lead changing until the end. At the finish, Waldek Zaleski (USA)of Norwalk, Connecticut found the last left shift to take the gun ahead of Andy Horton (USA). Horton's consistent day of 5,2 in inconsistent conditions, moves him into fourth place overall.

Results are still pending in the Canada vs Mexico street hockey tournament. Local bookmakers have team Canada favoured!
