Leader Shuffleboard at J/24 Worlds

Published on September 22nd, 2017

Mississauga, ONT (September 22, 2017) – Light winds continued at the driveHG.ca J/24 World Championship 2017 in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, as just one race was accomplished on day four. Tony Parker’s Bangor Packet returned to the top of the leaderboard, placing eighth today, leaving him with 40 net points heading into the final day of competition on Saturday.

A fourth by Rossi Milev’s Clear Air moved him into second overall, five points off Parker’s pace. Evan Petley-Jones’ Lifted scored a 28 in Friday’s lone battle, dipping him to third place with 49 points.

Parker, from Washington D.C., has remained in the top two each day of the Championship. He is the most seasoned racer on the course, sailing 1978 hull #58, a testimony to the J/24’s quality and ruggedness, and the skill and consistency of the crew at this event. Parker is a five-time winner of the J/24 US East Coast Championship (which he has sailed 38 times).

Friday’s race winner was Ted Bartlewski’s Drivers Wanted, shadowed by Mark Laura’s Baba Louie and Carter White’s YouRegatta.

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.
