Congrats to Team BC at the Youth Worlds Qualifier

Competition was fierce in the twenty three boat 29er fleet this past weekend in Houston.  Sailors from the U.S and Canada sailed a ten race series at the 2018 Spring High Performance Regatta, with Youth Worlds qualification on the line for each country.

BC’s top spot went to team Parker/Smithman who finished 12th overall. The pair boasted consistent top ten and podium worthy results but earned an OCS in race 3. Their OCS forced them to carry a DNF (did not finish) in race 8 rather than drop the score.

Team Buck/Spicer were the second BC team finishing 15th overall, again with a number of top ten results throughout the event. Team Phillips/Smith was the top female team and third team overall from BC with a 19th place finish, and were closely followed in 20th by team Bergmann/Vindeløv.

This was a great showing for our BC athletes as they continue to develop a a squad and delve into international competition. We’ll see our BC skiff sailors next at 29er Midwinters West in San Diego this March.

For full results slick here.
