U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Sailing (ILCA 6 and ILCA 7) - Day 2

by US Sailing Team 19 Feb 00:48 GMT 15-24 February 2024

Day two was not for the faint of heart out on the Atlantic Ocean for the ILCA 6s and 7s at U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Sailing. First a waiting game required athletes to stay mentally engaged as the wind threw some heavy shifts and caused a number of postponements and abandonments, then it was go time for one race in each fleet.

The breeze started in the teens and ratcheted up to 20-30 knots, with gusts reaching over 30 as the ILCA 7 fleet rounded their first windward mark. Miami's Ernesto Rodriguez leading the charge of 36 boats, flying through the torrential downpour and around the top mark.

Marshall McCann won the day's epic race and moved to just two points in the overall standings behind his identical twin brother, Ford McCann, who still holds the lead. Daniel Escudero is in a close third, tied with Marshall McCann with nine points. Leo Boucher is in fourth with 11 points, followed by Chapman Petersen with 16 points.

In the ILCA 6, Charlotte Rose capitalized on her specialty in the big breeze, winning the day's race and breaking her tie with Erika Reineke, pulling ahead by two points. The two are followed by Lilly Myers in third, Christina Sakellaris in fourth - up from sixth overall on day one - and Hallie Schiffman in fifth.

Points are tight in both fleets and with plenty of races left to go it's still anyone's game.

Top 5 in each class after day two:

  • ILCA 6 - Charlotte Rose (4), Erika Reineke (6), Lilly Myers (12), Christina Sakellaris (14), Hallie Schiffman (14)
  • ILCA 7 - Ford McCann (7), Marshall McCann (9), Daniel Escudero (9), Leo Boucher (11), Chapman Petersen (16)
