DAY 4 OF 8 UPDATE: U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Sailing (ILCA 6 and ILCA 7)MIAMI, FLORIDA (20 February 2024) It's a game of Texas Hold 'Em as Texas natives Charlotte Rose and Ford McCann hold down their leads for a fourth day in a row in challenging conditions at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Sailing. A dying and shifting north-northwest breeze tested competitors' patience and mental stamina during a long day four of eight on the water where Race Committee logged the four scheduled races. With a race win each today, Erika Reineke and Christina Sakellaris both made progress closing their gaps with ILCA 6 leader Charlotte Rose, now with two points separating all three competitors. Lilly Myers remains in fourth, and Audrey Foley moved into fifth place from seventh the day before. Ford McCann pulled ahead of his brother, Marshall McCann, by an extra five points today in the ILCA 7 fleet, and Leo Boucher moved up to tie for second with Marshall. Daniel Escudero is back in the mix with two very consistent second place finishes today, moving from sixth overall to fourth and a point away from the podium. Chapman Petersen rounds out a tight top five after winning the first race of the day and nudged 2011 Pan American Games ILCA 7 representative, Clay Johnson, into sixth. Race Committee decided to trade the scheduled reserve day for day six rather than day five as Wednesday is forecasted to provide better conditions tomorrow. Competitors will return to Miami Yacht Club for more racing starting with ILCA 7s at 1100 ET. Top 5 in each class after day four: ILCA 6 – Charlotte Rose (12), Erika Reineke (14), Christina Sakellaris (16), Lilly Myers (32), Audrey Foley (46) ILCA 7 – Ford McCann (17), Marshall McCann (25), Leo Boucher (25), Daniel Escudero (26), Chapman Petersen (28)
