    [​IMG]The Pan American Games are the world’s third largest international multi-sport Games, only surpassed in size and scope by the Olympic Summer Games and the Asian Games. First held in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1951, this is the third time that Canada has been the host. The 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto on July 12-19 has attracted 20 countries to compete in 10 sailing events on Lake Ontario. After the five Olympic events held their Medal Race Saturday, the Pan Am Games in Toronto Harbour closed out Sunday with the final race for the remaining five non-Olympic events to determine who would stand on the podium with medals around their neck. The United States and Brazil tied for the most sailing medals won at the event, with both nations taking home six apiece. The J/24 Open results (13 races):
    1. Pereira/Bellinotto/Ambrus/Pereyra (ARG) 27
    2. McLaughlin/Andrews/Ogden/Jarvis (CAN) 39
    3. Seguel/Lira/Jux/Roth (CHI) 44
