Shifting tide at J/105 North Americans

Published on July 28th, 2018

Harbor Springs, MI (July 28, 2018) – Three teams have commanded the J/105 North American Championship, but none more than Terry McLaughlin and Rod Wilmer’s Mandate. Of the nine races thus far on Little Traverse Bay, the Toronto-based Mandate has won six of them, hoping to earn their third North American Championship since 2014.

However, Bruce Stone’s Gryphon ruled the course today with two bullets and a third, bringing them within four points of Mandate with two final races planned for tomorrow. Bill Zartler’s Deja Voodoo kept hold of third place.

Champagne conditions returned today with breeze in the mid-teens, temperatures in the 70s and puffy white clouds. The top three teams traded spots in the day’s trio of races, with Stone’s Gryphon earning the first victory, trailed by Zartler’s Deja Voodoo and McLaughlin/Wilmer’s Mandate. The shuffle in the next duel saw Mandate top Deja Voodoo and Gryphon. But it was Gryphon’s turn again the day’s final match, followed by Mandate and Deja Voodoo.

Racing concludes tomorrow.

Racing is planned for July 26 to 29.
