Clarke and Bjorn 18th Overall as 2012 Star World's Concluded

Clarke and Bjorn finished the 2012 Star World Championship with a highly respectable 18th overall. This team is frequently capable of scrapping at the top of the fleet, evidenced by their 4th place finish in the third race of this regatta. The championship was won by arguably one of the best sailing teams in the world, Robert Scheidt and Bruno Prada. If Scheidt wins yet another Olympic medal, is his supremacy still arguable?

It will be exciting to watch Tyler Bjorn, a Montreal sailor, and his helmsman Richard Clarke compete in the London Olympics. Best of luck guys!

2012 Star World's Gets a Wild and Windy Day

Richard Clarke and Tyler Bjorn had the kind of windy conditions they excel in today. The course had 18-20 knots of wind and heavier gusts. The Canadian team took 4th, after being 13th at the top mark! They add that to a 12th the first day, and a 37th the second day. So, so far that puts them in 15th overall.
