Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week - News: "A hopeful wait for a sea breeze to become established rewarded competitors in the classes scheduled to start from the Black Group committee boat with some first-class racing. However, for others the long wait was not so fruitful – despite promising indicators, the sea breeze failed to reach the central Solent until too late in the afternoon for race officials to be able to start racing from the Royal Yacht Squadron and Bramble lines...."

All fleets completed four races August 6th at the Chubb Jr. Championship hosted by Grand Traverse Yacht Club and Traverse Area Community Sailing. Henry Marshall scored a picket fence in the Byte fleet while an OCS kept Augie Dale and Gavin Burkhart from top spot in the 420 class, which is now led by Cassie Obel and Annika Garrett. The St. Pete YC crew still leads in Interlakes, but Hugh MacGillivray and co. are working to catch them. US Sailing video above.
