Koch and Bridge win North American Course Racing Continentals

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

No more wind for more races, this means Adam Koch (USA) walking away with the event victory and the title of the North American Course Racing Championships.

In the womens fleet, Steph Bridge (GBR) wins the event, but the title goes to Melissa Gil (USA). Congratulations !

 

It has been an exciting week in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Changing winds allowed for a total of nine races with one discard, and the result in the mens fleet shows how close the racing was. Adam Koch and Bruno Sroka (FRA) are tied in points, and Koch wins due to better scores. Damien LeRoy, with three bullets on the last windy day, only one point behind.

 

In the womens fleet the result became pretty clear quickly, with Steph Bridge taking one victory after the other. In second and third then, again tied in points, Melissa Gil and Sandy Parker (USA), with the better end for Gil.

All eyes are set now to the upcoming first PKRA tour stop in Thailand, and of course the 2010 Course Racing World Championship end of April in Corpus Christi, Texas.
