Australian Laser Championship

In an outstanding performance by a young sailor, 18-year-old Ben Lamb has just won the Australian Laser Championship at Albany in Western Australia. Second place went to 17-year-old youth sailor Tom Slingsby.
Lamb, from Lake Macquarie, was tied with Queensland's Brendan Casey, 24, going into today's final two races. He managed a clean start in the first race and sailed consistently in the shifty airs to finish fourth, while Casey dropped back in the pack and out of contention. Another third place in the last heat, sailed in 15-18 knot winds, sealed the regatta, giving Lamb his best ever Open results. He had never beaten Casey previously.

Results (AUS unless otherwise stated):

1 Lamb Ben 30 pts
2 Slingsby Tom 32 pts
3 Casey Brendon 35 pts
4 Wright Ed GBR 37 pts
5 Holroyd Jon 43 pts
6 Skulander Nicholas 56 pts

8 Skelton Joel 78 pts
9 Schmidt Andrew 81 pts
