The ICSA / Laser Performance Men's Singlehanded Championships concluded today with some lead changes and very close sailing. Conditions continued to be unseasonably chilly and breezy on Tampa Bay, with winds averaging between the mid to upper-teens for the entire regatta.
After 16 races in the men's regatta, Georgetown's Charlie Buckingham and Roger William's Cy Thompson were tied. Buckingham's 3-15 bested Thompson's 11-11 last two races, and they ended 1-2. The battle for third was even closer, with University of South Florida's Zack Marks tied with Yale's Cam Cullman going into the final race. Cullman prevailed, passing Marks upwind to win the final race and collect 3rd.
All races were WL x 5, with a windward offset and leeward gate. Four breakdowns were awarded, one OCS, and no protests filed. ICSA President Mitch Brindley served as ICSA rep.
