Steve Clark (USA) wins IC Pre Worlds

Development Canoe - Maas and Clark
International Canoe

Steve Clark of the USA was the winner of the International Canoe Pre Worlds event in his Development Canoe with junior Australian Alex Kalin the first IC home.

The final day was sailed in 25 knots plus, with just five starters - Tobias, Steve C, John Robson, Phil Stevenson - it was 30 plus in gusts and a little tricky sailing upwind with the swell.

Although many chose not to race, a lot of boats were still caught in the front, with a lot being towed in.

For the Worlds event it looks like three of the four AC's will race as AC's with one joining the Worlds fleet as an IC.
