Pimentel leads the way
The Great Sound, venue for the 35th America’s Cup, hosted the opening race day of the Laser Standard Rig National Championships at the weekend.
After five races of the eight-race series, Bermuda Race Week champion Cameron Pimentel leads the nine-boat fleet by a narrow two-point margin over nearest rival Malcolm Smith, the multiple world sunfish champion.
In third is promising sailor, Owen Siese, a further three-points off the lead pace.
The regatta, being organised by the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club, concludes on Saturday.
