Yesterday the sailors took a break in between the qualifying and final race days of the 2017 Optimist North American Championship to participate in Team Racing.
Team Racing took place on two courses on Thursday: The NORTH AMERCANS (NAMS) course for teams from North America, Mexico and the Caribbean, and The NATIONS course for teams from countries in South America, Europe and Asia.
Lack of wind, and accompanying shifts in wind direction when wind did fill in, meant that getting enough races in to complete a series was difficult. Team Racing will continue today, after the Championship Races for the day have been completed.
Athletes will be split into three final fleets for the Championship Series today and Saturday.
