Congrats to USA Laser Olympian Andrew Campbell who led the Laser fleet all the way around the course and scored his first win of the Olympic regatta in Race 3 in Qingdao. I can't find any news reports of the race online yet but the official results are here. Andrew started the regatta with a couple of finishes in the teens which he attributed on his blog yesterday to first race jitters and being over-conservative.
Meanwhile some of the early favorites in the Lasers such as Tom Slingsby from Australia are placing well down the fleet.
Can we hope for a medal for Andrew? Can't wait to read about this race on his blog.
Meanwhile Anna Tunnicliffe of USA leads the Laser Radial fleet...
