Day 2: Miami OCR 2008 - CYA Report

Here is an excerpt from CYA news

The second day at the Miami OCR regatta started off under an onshore postponement due to light winds. The flags eventually came down and racing was underway with windspeeds of 7-10 knots from the southeast.

The first race of the day on the radial course was delayed with a plague of general recalls, which forced the committee boat to bring out the black flag in order to get going. Lisa Ross had a great start and was leading most of the way until the last downwind. She finished with very respectable 4th place. The closest Canadian was Keamia Rasa who ended up in 7th place. In the second race of the day, the race committee wasted no time and put up the black flag right away. Keamia Rasa had a great first beat and ended 3rd at the windward mark, and would never lose that position. Lisa Ross kept herself at the top of the leaderboard with a 7th place finish.

On the Laser course, Robert Davis had a stellar day with a 5th place in the first race, followed by a 3rd in the second race and ended the day with a 1st place.
