North American Course Continentals Day 3 Update

Another day of great racing and even more wind. The committee boat reported gusts over 40 mph and wind averages from 30 to 35 mph. Kite sizes were from 6 meters to 9 meters with five races completed. Sean Farley continues to dominate the field but did slow down just a little in the last races, taking out a 6 meter kite and protecting his 20 point lead over Damien Leroy who finished strong today-- winner of the last two races.

The dog-fight is still on for second spot separating Damien, Sky and Jesse by only three points. With only one throw-out there is no room for error. We did have two kite wraps today, one between Chip Wasson and Sky Solbach, taking them out of the races. Chip protested and won and was back in the hunt sitting now on Abel Lago's tail for fifth place. The other wrap involved Abel and Mike Gebhardt-- Gebhardt was taken out by Abel and will get a redress. The masters are still battling out their positions with 9 points separation between Ken Winner, Mike Gebhardt and Nils Stolzlechner. Looks like this one will go down to the wire as well today. On the woman's side, Melissa Gil has re-taken the lead from Sandy Parker but this also will come down to the final day of racing-- 5 points apart after 16 races. It will be interesting to see who will come out ahead. Kristin Boese has dropped back a little but can not be counted out. The weather forecast is calling for sunny skies, winds from the southwest at 30 mph, with possible higher gusts in the afternoon.
