Gordon Lamphere - Second American at Finn Nationals

Sheboygan was the site and rain was the weekend weather. Caleb Paine won the event followed by a Canadian but Gordon Lamphere showed the results of two summers of solid training after graduating from St. Mary's College in June.

Caleb Paine, US Sailing Team member, won the 2012 US Nationals held in Sheboygan, Wisconsin October 11-14. Paine and Canadian 2012 Olympic Finn sailor, Greg Douglas swapped lead changes several times during the grueling Lake Michigan conditions.
No races were held Saturday due to 8 to 10 foot seas and 20 knots of breeze from the southwest. Winds clocked to the northwest overnight allowing the seas to diminish to 3 to 5 feet Sunday. Sailors were challenged with a steady, cold rain and 8 to 20 knots of breeze to complete the series.
The top five place finishers are:
  1. Caleb Paine from San Diego, CA
  2. Greg Douglas from Toronto, Canada
  3. Gordon Lamphere from Lake Forest, IL
  4. Martin Robitaille from Quebec, Canada
  5. John Dane from Pass Christian, MS
