Sarasota, FL (January 31, 2015) – A handful of teams juggled among the top three finishing positions today, as four races were completed on day two of the VX One Midwinter Championship hosted by Sarasota Sailing Squadron in Florida.
Marty Kullman’s Blue Flame secured three firsts, however it is Christopher Alexander’s Isabelita Con Queso on top of the leaderboard heading into the final day of racing on Sunday with 19 points. John Potter holds the bronze position with 24 points (Kullman has 21). A discard race has now taken effect.
Breezes at 10 knots, including gusts to 14, greeted the 27 teams on the middle day of the Championship. Following Kullman in the opening bout was Chris Griffin’s Kill Bill and Justin Howard’s Rosebud. Alexander, the 2014 VX One North American champion, took the next victory, with Ched Proctor’s Flash Rider in second and Kullman in third. Kullman, Griffin and Proctor claimed the top spots in Saturday’s third race, and some familiar names did the same in the final contest (Kullman, Alexander, Griffin).
