Clarke & Bjorn Make it to the Medal Round at ISAF World Championship

It must have been a pretty stressful day of racing for Montrealer Tyler Bjorn and his helmsman Richard Clarke but, they have done it! They have made it into the final medal round race to be held Saturday. The weather in Perth was tough with reports citing puffs of breeze and glassy areas during some of the racing. After two races for the day, Bjorn & Clarke held onto 10th overall. Only the top ten teams move on to the final medal round race Saturday. Legendary sailor Robert Scheidt and Bruno Prada of Brazil, the defending World Champions are dominating, in 1st overall. Anything can happen in the medal round format though, so it will be an exciting day tomorrow.
