Clarke and Bjorn win Bronze!

From the CYA website

Final - Bronze for Clarke and Bjorn

A 12th place finish in race 6 found the Clarke and Bjorn team tied for 2nd overall and on the tie breaker awarded the Bronze Medal. What an outstanding accomplishment for this Canadian team, now securely establishing themselves amongst the elite of the elite in the Star class. Clarke commented that "it was a little disappointing to lose one boat on the final run that resulted in a tie, and ultimately 3rd overall...but if you had told me at the start of the week we would win the Bronze, I would have been thrilled".

The next stop for the Canadian Star contingent is Weymouth, for the Skandia Sail for Gold event in August.
