Laser Master Worlds brings 3 Cubes to D7

Bruno Fontes video above (practice session for Laser Worlds) pretty much sums up what the first day of racing and the last day of racing looked like at the Master Worlds on Hayling Island - epic!

The USA overall was well represented at the Masters and D7 sailors were a big part of that equation! Bringing home a cube (the coveted World Championship prize) were:

1st Place in the Standard Master fleet - Scott Ferguson
2nd Place in the Grand Master Radial fleet - Alden Shattuck
2nd Place in the Great Grand Master Radial fleet - Peter Seidenberg

Also impressive finishes:
5th Place in Standard Apprentice fleet - Ben Richardson
16th place in Standard Master fleet - Peter Shope (Peter was top 10 going into the last race but had to count an OCS in the last race)

Conditions were challenging as there was just about everything thrown at the fleet from nuking conditions to super light and shifty.

Scott Ferguson -1st Master Standard

Alden Shattuck - 2nd Grand Master Radial
Peter Seidenberg - 2nd Great Grand Master Radial
Ben Richardson - 5th Apprentice Standard
Peter Shope - 16th Master Standard
