Fauer & Lewis win Atlantics from Liberty & Whipple
Marlena Fauer & Christina Lewis have won the U.S. I 420 Atlantic Coast Championship at Annapolis Yacht Club by just two points from Ian Liberty & Alex Whipple.
But the close sailing for the top two places on the podium, were mirrored by some close sailing lower down the leaderboard. With a bullet in the last race, Olivia Crane & Ali Blumenthal, while finishing on equal points to Sarah Williams & Tierney Driscoll, made the bronze step on countback. We hear that four races were sailed each day, with conditions of 8-14 knots both days, Our Waterside Correspondent at Annapolis says: "Marlena and Christina sailed a fantastic regatta and braved the rain" [evidently a man who 'cuts out the cackle' and gets straight to the critical points!
