Light Wind Specialists' Chance to Shine
Posted On:  22/02/2014 08:54:17

The second day of the North American Championships dawned as expected with warm sunny breezes and the beautiful turquoise waters beckoned.  A chance for the light wind specialists to shine in the second and third races today.

First girl Mariana Aguilar MEX-66 has moved up the overall ranking from 11th to 8th, really pleased with her third and second places.  She would have liked to win but the boys were "just pumping and pumping and I couldn't get to them".

Steven Cramer took two bullets sending him three places up the leaderboard, now just two points off the podium in fourth place.  "I love these conditions, this is what we train in in Miami.  I want to keep myself ahead of the fleet and work with my team mates just to make sure we get a spot.  The other days might have different conditions."

Two points now separate the Nores brothers on the podium.  Maximo took the first bullet of the day, then had to settle for a seventh which has been discarded, then a third.  Geronimo in second place has consistent  two's and three's, discarding a fourth.  Mac Van Den Eerenbeemt is not a fan of the light wind conditions.  He came second in the first race of the day but then an eighth and a ninth (discarded) were the best he could do as the wind lessened.

The junior boys are sliding down the leaderboard.  Mexican Adolfo de la O is now first junior boy with a healthy 6 point lead over Manuel Nores.
