Terhune Holds Lead at J/22 Worlds

Published on September 12th, 2018

Annapolis, MD (September 12, 2018) – Allan Terhune’s Thunder Chicken has been putting his local knowledge to good use at the 2018 J/22 World Championship. While many teams have struggled with the strong current and light air, Terhune strengthened his first-place advantage during today’s two races.

With the benefit of a discard upon the sixth race, Thunder Chicken is able to toss an 18, leaving them with net scores of 4,6,1,2,2 for 15 points. That’s nine points better than fellow local Zeke Horowitz’s Uncle Fluffy, who moved up a spot to second with a 5,6 today for 24 net points. Michael Marshall’s Bad News placed 35th in race five, and even with this being their throw-out, dropped to third place with 35 points.

Sunshine returned to the Chesapeake Bay, but the breeze stayed calm at about 6 knots. The day’s opening match saw some new names at the top: Chris Wientjes’ Us, Cory Sertl’s Lucy and Kevin Doyle’s Mo’ Money. Kevin’s son Jake Doyle on Zesty Enterprise took the next contest, shadowed by Terhune and David Waiting’s Solstice.

While the forecast for Hurricane Florence continues to suggest the storm will stay south of the race area and have minimal impact, the event organizers believed it to be prudent and finish the regatta a day early. The schedule is now changed to 10 races total, finishing on Thursday, September 13.
