Braving the cold weather and air, Philippe Benoît traveled to Kingston, Ontario as Team PCYC's sole representative at the Fall CORK Regatta.
The weather was cold, the conditions were rough and Phil knew he would be up against the best radial sailors in Quebec and Ontario. Nonetheless, Phil was determined to make up for his disappointing finish at the Canadian Youth Championship back in August. After spending the weekend sailing in winds gusting up to 25 knots, Phil managed and impressive 11th place finish out of 57 boats, "I only made it into Silver Fleet at CORK, which was a little disappointing for me," says Phil. "After this weekend I feel like that I redeemed myself, I'm very happy with my result and I'm looking forward to next year to do even better."
