Falmouth, Maine (September 10, 2015) – Christopher Stone’s Velocidad grabbed the lead on day one of the J/24 Pape Chevrolet North American Championship by winning the day’s only race. The New Jersey-based team topped competitors from Argentina, Canada, Mexico and the USA in the 50-boat fleet.
Dan Busch’s Buschwacker, also from New Jersey, placed second, while local Carter White’s Sea Bags Sailing Team rounded out the top three. Entrants wrapped up the measurement and registration process on Thursday morning at Portland Yacht Club, before heading out in very light and shifty conditions for the lone contest.
