Published on September 27th, 2014
Marblehead, MA (September 27, 2014) – It was a picturesque day on Marblehead Harbor with plenty of sunshine for the second day of the U.S. Team Racing Championship.
Once again, a lack of consistent breeze made for a challenging day for the Race Committee, umpires and competitors. Nevertheless, PRO Susie Schneider and her team were able to complete Round Robin 1 as well as a full round robin for both the Gold and Silver Fleets.
This sets up a final Gold Fleet for tomorrow which will include one round robin where the points for wins are doubled. From there, the two teams with the most points from Round Robin 1 and the Gold Fleet Round Robin will face off in a best of 5 races for the title.
Tomorrow’s Gold Fleet teams who will compete for the championship are Kirkwood Ticklers, Do Less, Team Shred, Ladies and Gentlemen, Hoodrat S.W.O.F., and RI Pistols.
