Rod Wilmer and Terry McLaughlin rule J/105 North Americans

Published on September 28th, 2014

Light air ruled the J/105 North American Championship hosted by Royal Canadian Yacht Club in Toronto, Ontario, Canada – and so did Rod Wilmer and Terry McLaughlin on Mandate.

In the five-race series on September 25-28, the Mandate crew of McLaughlin, Wilmer, John Millen, Sandy Andrews, Fraser Howell, Graham Hicks and Andrew McTavish earned just 10 points (1,3,2,2,2). Rick Goebel’s Sanity (12 points) gained second place, and Peter Hall’s Jamaica Me Crazy (13 points) third. No races occurred on the final day due to lack of breeze.

McLaughlin has swept the major J/105 championships this year, as he is also the current Midwinter Champion. The next J/105 North American Championship moves to St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco on September 14-20, 2015.

Twenty-seven teams competed from Bermuda, Canada and the United States.
