Helena Lucas,2.4,GBR
Sailor Helena Lucas of Great Britain took the win in the 2011 U.S. 2.4mR Class Association Pre-Worlds over Paul Tingley of Canada and Bruce Miller who tied for second place.

Tingley, who led the regatta on the strength of two wins on Day One, managed only two eighth-place finishes, one a throw-out, on Saturday. Millar posted two –fifths Saturday to catch Tingley after starting the day three points back.

Megan Pascoe of Great Britain raced her way into fourth with a second and third and Holland’s Andre Rademaker, the runner-up to fellow countryman Thierry Schmitter in the 2011 IFDS Worlds in Weymouth in July, clawed into the top five after taking third in the first race of day three. Schmitter cracked the top ten with a sixth-place finish (plus a 15th that he dropped) to wind up ninth.

Nineteen sailors from eight countries participated in the regatta, which was organized by the U.S. 2.4mR Class Association and Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club.
