Mandate maintains lead at J/105 North Americans

Published on July 27th, 2018

Harbor Springs, MI (July 27, 2018) – While the weather on Little Traverse Bay turned cooler, Terry McLaughlin and Rod Wilmer’s Mandate stayed hot at the J/105 North American Championship.

Mandate recorded their fourth and fifth bullets of the Championship, and added a second, to tally just 7 points in the six races so far. Bruce Stone’s Gryphon maintained second place with 12 points and Bill Zartler’s Deja Voodoo third with 21 points.

A misty sky, 60-degree temperatures and winds at 10-15 knots greeted the 15 teams today. The top three in the day’s first race matched the same trio as all of yesterday’s races: Mandate, Gryphon and Deja Voodoo. Stone’s Gryphon broke into the top spot in the next contest, ahead of McLaughlin and Wilmer’s Mandate and Jon Weglarz’s The Asylum. The Mandate team returned to their familiar position in the final battle, with Stone’s Gryphon in second and Weglarz’s The Asylum back in third.

Racing is planned for July 26 to 29.
