Day four of the Pan American Games brought some much-needed sun and warmer air temperatures to combat the frigid Pacific water and mountainous swell. Team USA powered through another 10-15 knot day with nine classes finishing the day in podium positions.

Though the race committee projected a 30% calmer sea state than the previous days, day four shaped up to be another wavy one. "There's really nothing like it- it's some of the biggest waves we've seen. You don't see this on the east coast of the US, that's for sure," said Allan Terhune, skipper of the USA Lightning team after dominating another day with a 1-1-2 scoreline. "You've got to keep the boat loaded up and keep it powering through the big swell with chop on top. It's pretty difficult; the boat is going up in the swell and then there's chop. It's easy to want to depower the boat thinking it's windy, but you need the power through the waves so it's a balance."


  • Daniela Moroz won all four races in the Women's Formula Kite, continuing her winning streak from day three
  • In the Nacra 17, Sarah Newberry-Moore and David Liebenberg moved up the standings from 3rd to 2nd
  • Erika Reineke remains on top of the ILCA 6 class, scoring a 2nd in the one race of the day
  • The Men's and Women's Sunfish and Snipe classes continue to grind their way up the leaderboard, with each US representative advancing at least a place today
