Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club sailors have continued their winning ways with success at the 2014 USODA Team Championships in California.

The LOOT Team 1, consisting of Adam Larson, Mikey Wollmann, Austin Ando (USA) and Tayte Stefaniuk, won the Silver Fleet. 

They qualified for the Gold Fleet but weren’t allowed to compete since the winners will be representing the USODA at Opti Team Cup Berlin 2014 in Germany. 

In the individual categories, Larson finished 13th overall out of 229 sailors. He was 10th in his age group. Stefaniuk was fifth in his age group and 22nd overall, with Wollmann finishing 33rd overall.

Meanwhile, Royal Bermuda Yacht Club Commodore Somers Kempe was crowned the 2014 Bermuda National Match Racing Champion on Saturday in Hamilton Harbour.

A spokesman said: “The final was sailed between Kempe and Patrick Cooper, with Kempe choosing the boat for the first match, leaving Cooper with the favoured starboard entry. The second match saw a boat swap and an entry switch and Kempe did not miss a beat as he sailed the final to a quick two-match win.”
