Late but worth the wait at J/24 Worlds

Published on September 21st, 2017

Mississauga, ONT (September 21, 2017) – If good things come to those who wait, then Evan Petley-Jones’ Lifted is the perfect example on day three of the driveHG.ca J/24 World Championship.

Sixty-three teams waited out multiple hours of an on-water postponement, hoping for enough breeze to get a start off. Finally around 3:30 p.m., light winds allowed two more races to be completed, which brought into effect the discard.

Petley-Jones’ Lifted tallied a 7,1 today to leap into first place overall, able to drop a 39 from race 1. Tony Parker’s Bangor Packet fell to second place with 32 points. John Mollicone’s Helly Hansen launched up to the third spot with 33 net points after tossing a 52 from the first race. Six races are now finalized.

The fleet started race 5 in about 5 knots, when Nobuyuki Imai’s Siesta collected the win. Mollicone and Ted Bartlewski’s Drivers Wanted followed. Looking at Petley-Jones cross the finish line first in the next meeting were David Klatt’s Jaded and Travis Odenbach’s HoneyBadger when winds increased slightly.

Teams from Argentina, Canada, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Peru and the USA are competing with 10 races scheduled on September 19 to 23.
