Principal Race Officer Wallace PALETOU and Chief Umpire Dobbs DAVIS determined today that conditions were not suitable for racing at the 2004 International Catamaran Challenge Trophy (ICCT).
Racing in the Defender Series concluded yesterday with Johnny LOVELL and Charlie OGLETREE winning the right to defend the International Catamaran Challenge Trophy. Racing in the Challenger Series will resume tomorrow, Friday, October 22, to determine whether Mitch BOOTH and Herbert DERCKSEN of The Netherlands or Enrique FIGUEROA and Jorge SANCHEZ of Puerto Rico will challenge for the ICCT. Both teams are currently tied at three points each.
Revived in 2003 after a hiatus of more than seven years, the ICCT is an international match racing event for catamarans. Sailing from Southern Yacht Club in F18HTs, the winners of the respective Defender and Challenger eliminations will compete head-to-head in a first-to-four points series for the Trophy on Friday, October 22, and, if necesssary, Saturday, October 23.
