Montreal Sailors Lead the Lightning Masters Championship After First Day

Of 32 entries at the Lightning Masters Championship, there is only one non-American team. That would be the local Lightning wizard Peter Hall sailing with another local hot-shot, Jay Deakin, and the famous American, Ched Proctor. Being the only Canadian entry is not what the team will be recognized for at the moment. Rather, it is likely to be how they are leading the regatta! The first day is now complete, and the Canucks won the first race, and came in 2nd in the 2nd race. It appears that Hall steered in the lead for the entire first race. Hall, Deakin & Proctor now have 3 points against 5 each for the teams in 2nd and 3rd overall. The regatta is actually being held nearby in Colchester Vermont at the Mallets Bay boat Club on Lake Champlain.
