Cayard extends lead
"It was a good race, and well worth waiting until 3:20 p.m. to start," said Jonathan Harley (Middletown, R.I.), US Sailing's Olympic Director. The Race Committee will attempt to run three races tomorrow, with the first start holding at noon, in an effort to get back on track before Wednesday's layday.
George Szabo (San Diego, Calif.) and Mark Strube (Miami, Fla.) won today's race, the fifth of the series. With five races figured into the scoring, the 22 Star teams can now drop their worst race thus far. Once 12 races have been scored the sailors will be able to drop two. Szabo and Strube gained two spots, moving up from sixth to fourth overall on 19 points.
Paul Cayard (Kentfield, Calif.) and Phil Trinter (Lorain, Ohio) added a third from today to their scoreline, and dropping a sixth from day one. They remain in the leader's spot in the overall scoring on eight points.
Eric Doyle (San Diego, Calif.) with crew Brian Sharp (Norwalk, Conn./Franklin, Mass.) also keep their place in the overall scoring – second – after placing fifth today. They have 15 points thus far for the series.
Vince Brun and Mike Dorgan (both San Diego, Calif.) finished fourth, and with the benefit of dropping their OCS from the first race of the series, now stand third overall on 16 points
Andrew Macdonald (Miami, Fla.) and Austin Sperry (Miami, Fla.) round out the top-five in overall scoring after finishing sixth today. They carry 22 points.
