FINAL RACE REPORT

By Russ Clark

The 2019 North American 505 Championships are complete. 

Congratulations to Mike Martin and Adam Lowry who have won the event after 10 races from Howard Hamlin and Russ Clark in second and Mike Holt and Carl Smit in third.

After a postponement ashore today’s racing was abandoned as the sun beat down and the breeze faltered. The prize giving was held on the waterfront lead by event organiser Jeff Boyd with recognition given to the small army of volunteers who made this event a true success.

The 40 boat fleet was challenged by mixed conditions and tight racing on the fresh water of Lake Ontario. With 4 of the current top 5 boats in the world competing, the battle for the podium places was always destined to be tough, however the whole fleet enjoyed tight racing with plenty of opportunity for place swapping and overtaking.
