It was a frustrating day on the water as light winds plagued the race
courses. But with racing postponed on the water the sailors enjoyed a
bit of fun...
Saturday will be the penultimate day of racing for the Olympic class
sailors. Contenders will be forced to elevate their game in the Medal
Races. Sailors and their crews have had at least a week of acclimating
to the light, and at times, unpredictable winds on Biscayne Bay.
The three Paralympic class events awarded gold medals on Friday at the
2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami. The 2014 gold medalists are Megan
Pascoe (GBR) in the 2.4mR, Alexandra Rickham and Niki Birrell (GBR) in
the SKUD 18, and Bruno Jourdren, Eric Flageul and Nicolas Vimont Vicary
(FRA) in the Sonar.
