Early tone set at J/105 North Americans

Published on July 26th, 2018

Harbor Springs, MI (July 26, 2018) – Little Traverse Bay presented picture-perfect conditions for 15 teams on the opening day of the J/105 North American Championship hosted by Little Traverse Yacht Club. Winds in the teens joined by blue skies and temperatures in the low 70s made for three ideal races, all of which were won by Terry McLaughlin and Rod Wilmer’s Mandate.

The Toronto-based two-time North American Champions (2014 and 2016) ruled the day with Bruce Stone’s Gryphon recording all seconds and Bill Zartler’s Deja Voodoo with all thirds.

There are eight remaining races planned through July 29 with each boat’s series score to be the total of her race scores without exclusion.
