Consistency was key on Race Day 3, Sunday for Canadian Allan Clark, who finished second in both races and slid into first overall after six races in the 42-competitor Grand Masters division. Monday was a reserve day for the sailors to rest up before racing resumed on Tuesday, February 14 with two races scheduled. There will be six days of racing plus the one reserve day in the middle of the regatta.
The 2023 ILCA 6 Masters World Championships, hosted by the Royal Varuna Yacht Club in Pattaya, Thailand is welcoming 117 sailors from 23 countries competing. The 75+ years Legends fleet has 20 competitors, and among the eldest are two 85-year-olds who have only minor issues about having to compete against their juniors.
Clark is based in Vancouver and last year won a gold medal at the 2022 ILCA 6 Masters World Championship in Mexico.
Full results including the other participating Canadians will be included in the next issue of Sailing in Canada.
