Mandate earns J/105 North American win

Published on July 29th, 2018

Harbor Springs, MI (July 29, 2018) – Terry McLaughlin and Rod Wilmer’s Mandate went wire to wire to earn their third J/105 North American Championship title in five years. The Toronto-based team, including Sandy Andrews, Fraser Howell, Ian Howes, and Andrew McTavish, won seven of the 11 races and never finished out of the top three.

Mandate’s 16 points in the no-throw-out series were nine better than Bruce Stone’s Gryphon who tallied 25 points. Bill Zartler’s Deja Voodoo took third place with 31 points. All three teams reigned over the top three in nearly every race of the four-day Championship hosted by Little Traverse Yacht Club.

Beautiful summer conditions again greeted the 15 J/105 teams on Little Traverse Bay, with a bit lighter breeze than previous days. Today’s race winners were Mandate and Deja Voodoo.

Racing was held on July 26 to 29.
