US Laser Nationals, Lake Tahoe, CA


US Nationals finished up yesterday here in Lake Tahoe, CA. First of all a massive thank you to guest coach Steve Mitchell for all your help and support this week with the team!

Congratulations to Chase Carraway, 2017 US Radial National Champion!

The race committee did a great job in some extremely challenging conditions. Unfortunately over the 4 days only 7 races were sailed in the Laser Fleet and 6 in the Radial.

Carson Shields sailed an impressive regatta, making his mark in the Laser fleet! Carson came away with 6th overall and was close to the podium!

In the Radial fleet the team made some consistent progression each day and came away with some impressive results! Lots of lessons where learnt and it’s extremely exciting to see all of your training pay off, keep it up!
