RACE RESULTS: DAY 3 – Friday, August 12, 2016

CHESTER, N.S. (August 12, 2016) – No one would describe it as picture-perfect, but continuously shifting winds kept things “entertaining” for sailors at Chester Race Week Day 3.

“There were some major changes with the wind,” says Principal Race Officer Brian Todd, who also ran the One Design course. “I think our racers appreciated the hard work our mark-layers put in to keep everyone on course.”
