Published on October 5th, 2015
Gulfport, MS (October 5, 2015) – The VX One North American Championship, hosted by Gulfport Yacht Club, got off to a solid start with four races completed for 28 teams. Marcus Eagan’s Cajun Underwriting holds the early advantage after posting scores of 1,2,6,2 for 11 points. Three points behind is Donovan Brennan’s Smuggler, while 2014 North American Champion Chris Alexander’s Isabelita Con Queso rests in third with 27 points.
As the opening contest got underway under partly sunny skies, winds were 8 knots, but dropped a bit by the time of the finish. Eagan crossed the line first, ahead of Brennan and Bill Griffin. Brennan moved up to the top spot in race two as the shifty breeze rose to 8-10 knots and overcast arrived. Eagan dropped to the second position, and Alexander placed third. Isabelita Con Queso claimed the next victory, while John Potter and Dustin Brennan followed. A new name, Matt Haddon, won the final bout, as Eagan and Potter rounded out the top trio while the sun returned.
Racing continues through Wednesday, October 7.
