Team Eagan increase lead at VX One North Americans
Published on October 6th, 2015
Gulfport, MS (October 6, 2015) – Favorable conditions continued on the second day of the VX One North American Championship at Gulfport Yacht Club in Mississippi. With eight races now in the books, Marcus Eagan’s Cajun Underwriting (with brother Andrew on board) has strengthened his lead and now totals just 14 net points. That’s 22 better than second-place Chris Alexander’s Isabelita Con Queso. Eagan’s dominating scores of 1,2,6,2,1,1,1 allowed him to drop an eight in race six. George Gamble’s My Sharona moved up to third place with 42 points.
The 28 teams weren’t optimistic for a full day of racing on Tuesday, but a 6-8 knot sea breeze allowed another four races to be completed. Eagan notched his first of three bullets in the initial contest, tailed by Robby Brown’s Bob Sled and Alexander. Bill Griffin’s Kill Bill took a turn in the top spot in the next battle as Jeff Eiber’s This Side Down and Matt Haddon made the top three. Gamble and Alexander watched Eagan cross the line first in race seven. Following Cajun Underwriting in the last race were Eiber and Kenny Wolfe’s Angry Baboon.
Racing concludes Wednesday, October 7.
