    The Bermuda Laser Open National Championships were held in Harrington Sound last weekend

Benn Smith won every race en route to claiming the standard rig title at the Bermuda Laser Open National Championships, which were hosted by Spanish Point Boat Club last weekend.

Smith, who represented Bermuda at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru, was among 26 competitors signed up in standard, radial and 4.7 laser rigs, the largest fleet for a Bermuda Laser National.

In the laser radial, Adriana Penruddocke took the honours, with Will Jackson, of the Cayman Islands coming second and Jordan Etemadi, the grandson of Bermuda great Jordi Walker, placing third.

Olympian Malcolm Smith, the father of Benn Smith, competed on the second day of the radial, taking second and third in the final two races, while Stephen West, another former Olympian, raced on day one of the standard competition.

Andreas Steinitz, of Canada, won the 4.7 rig, with Nicole Stovell coming second and Sergio de Frias, who has only started sailing in the boat in September, finishing third.

The championships were organised by the Bermuda Laser Class Association together with U Sail Bermuda, the sailing centre on Harrington Sound,
