Published on September 7th, 2018
Falmouth, ME (September 7, 2018) – Patience was required for the 48 teams on the opening day of the J/24 US National Championship. After several hours of anticipating the wind to settle, it came in at 6-8 knots, then increased to 8-10, allowing two long races to go in the books on Casco Bay.
Two teams are tied at 5 points: Nicolas Cubria’s Elvis and Tony Parker’s Bangor Packet. Cubria registered a 4,1, while Parker took a 3,2. Local Carter White’s YouRegatta.com holds the third spot with 11 points.
Natalie Harden’s Giggles commenced the Championship with the opening bullet, in advance of White and Parker. Cubria then took line honors, as Parker moved up to second and Aidan Glackin’s Mental Floss made the top three.
Racing is planned from September 7 to 9.
