Team Eagan dominated VX One North Americans
Published on October 7th, 2015
Gulfport, MS (October 7, 2015) – It likely didn’t matter to the Eagan brothers (Marcus and Andrew) on Cajun Underwriting whether the sea breeze would come in Wednesday at the VX One North American Championship at Gulfport Yacht Club in Mississippi. They held a commanding 22-point lead after the eight races completed on the initial two days of the Championship, and were only dropping an eighth.
The Bay-Waveland Yacht Club duo kept scores of 1,2,6,2,1,1,1 for 14 points, and their dominance was confirmed mid-day Wednesday when the Race Committee had to abandon racing to leave the scores as final. 2014 North American Championship Chris Alexander’s Isabelita Con Queso secured the silver position with 36 points, and George Gamble’s My Sharona the bronze with 42.
Kenny Wolfe’s Angry Baboon placed fourth with crew Rod Favela onboard, who summarized, “The light airs of Gulfport, MS were predominant, making it very interesting on the water. It was a very competitive fleet. Congratulations to Marcus and Andrew Eagan for their victory. Solid performance!”
The top five:
Marcus Eagan, Cajun Underwriting (14 points)
Chris Alexander, Isabelita Con Queso (36 points)
George Gamble, My Sharona (42)
Kenny Wolfe Angry Baboon (49)
John Potter (55)
Twenty-eight teams competed in the three-day event.
