Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the USA all earned qualification places for the 2010 Youth Olympic Games at the latest continental qualifier for the Boy's and Girl's Windsurfer events, the Techno 293 North Americas.
The 2010 Techno 293 North American Championships were held as part of the 25th Calema Midwinters windsurfing festival. Over 20 competitors took part, representing Canada, Guatemala, Mexico, Puerto Rico and USA. As the North American Continental qualifier for the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games, qualification was open to the top two nations in the boys and girls Under 17 events.

Ignacio lleonart of Mexico sailed a terrific regatta to win the Boy’s Under 17 fleet and secure Mexico a qualification spot for Singapore 2010. lleonart was closely followed by fellow Mexican Jose Carlos Torres. In third place, Alejandro Monllor (PUR) ensured his place on the podium as well as the second qualification spot for Puerto Rico.

In the Girl’s event Marion Lepert of the USA was a clear winner, however due to IOC eligibility requirements (she does not have her full US citizenship), she is not eligible to qualify USA for the Youth Olympics. This gave the first qualification place to Canada, as Audrey Caron (CAN) took the silver medal. In the end, the US also got their qualification place as Margot Samson (USA) took the bronze medal.

The next YOG qualification event is the Byte CII Midwinter’s/North American Championship in the Cayman Islands from 10-15 March.

The Notice of Race will be published very soon and can be found on the class website with details of the remaining continental qualifiers: www.techno293.org.
