Montreal, June 26th, 2015 - The 2015 Laser Canadian Championships were held at CORK in Kingston from June 19th to 21st.The club hosted 108 competitors representing 17 nations. Several Quebecers were present including two athletes from the Quebec Sailing Team, Coralie Vittecoq and her brother Justin, who raced in the Radial class. The two young athletes were coached by Jessica Lombard, who during this event took the position of Rosie Chapman to coach the athletes for the regatta. Thank you Jessica!
Despite sunny weather, there was not enough wind to run a race the first day, and the second day only 2 races were completed.
For her first start Coralie, from Hudson Yacht Club, had a great performance finishing in 1st place. Unfortunately, for the second race she was unable to duplicate the same result and took the 25th position. Overall, she finished 10th of 46 athletes. Her brother also had great good results as he finished 3rd overall and won the bronze medal.
Congratulations to all athletes at this event!
