CSC ILCA & 29er Open (Day 2)

The final day of the CSC ILCA & 29er Open 2024 was characterised by similar conditions except for the absence of rain, an unexpected occurrence in this typically wet monsoon season. The current was yet again as strong as ever by mid-afternoon, however, our sailors have now better anticipated this challenge. Furthermore, with 7 races run in total for the ILCA 6s and 29ers and 6 races for the ILCA 4s, each sailor is allowed to discard only one race. This demands them to operate at the pinnacle of their performance, leaving little room for error.

The ILCA 4s had an interesting set of conditions to battle with, especially in the last race. As the winds subsided and the current picked up, a substantial majority—three-quarters, to be precise—of the fleet found themselves unable to complete the race within the finishing window. In a hard-fought competition, Eitan Oh (222743), Ian Goh (222713) and Sarah Yong (214438) claim the 3 spots on the podium. For CSC’s Tiago Cheng De Villemor Salgado (222437), it seems like Day 1 of the regatta was simply a warm-up exercise for him. His progress has been nothing short of remarkable, evident from consistent top 4 positions in all races today! Also among the CSC squad, Lukas Kiasselbach (221597), Samuel Tan Hardy (221934) and Maia Lim Laurie (223201) have done well too, together with Misa Lim Laurie (223202) who claims the overall champion for the 12 years and under category.

For the ILCA 6s, the podium remains steadfast with no alterations to the top 3 positions. Kenan Tan (205778) takes the gold, followed by Isaac Goh (219158) and Jarrod Toh (214748). Nonetheless, further down the fleet, there has been some reshuffling of the rankings. One such example is Abigail Koh (214237), who improved to 4th overall given her exceptional top 5 finishes in today’s races. Aidan Ang (209051) also makes up for his DNS and RTD from yesterday and is now 12th place from 17th. Additionally, CSC’s Rohit Behl (3) moves up 2 places, while John Gabriel Lim (206799), Caio Sullivan (221931) and James Sullivan (19291) maintain their rankings. A great job to our ILCA sailors!

The victors in the 29er class, Seth Low and Amos Tham (SGP) exhibited unparalleled mastery. Their performance was flawless, marked by a succession of bullet finishes, leaving no room for contention throughout the day. Following them, Nicole Ng Hui Hong / Ezann Sephira Tan (SIN) and Cheryl Yong Heng Xi / Annika Chui (8) exchanged places in the rankings. The former duo claims the coveted second position on the podium, having closely trailed Seth and Amos in each race throughout the day. Josh Ang Shaal (153), although the last in the fleet, did improve from yesterday with 3rd place finishes in most of the day’s races.

Once again, we would like to express our appreciation to the Race Committee, Coaches, Staff and Volunteers for making this all possible. Thank you to all sailors for your unwavering commitment and outstanding performance in this regatta, and see you next time!
