Published on April 3rd, 2019

Valle de Bravo, Mexico (April 3, 2019) – Will Welles’ Bruschetta remains at the top of the leaderboard at the J/24 North American Championship as his team of boat owner Aroldo de Rienzo along with Rich Bowen, John McCabe, and PJ Schaffer posting scores of 1,5,1. Now able to discard the fifth in race five, Welles has a net score of 7 points in six races of the planned 10-race series.

Tony Parker’s Bangor Packet benefited from a solid day to jump into second place overall, after recording a 3,1,3 for 14 net points. Kenneth Porter’s S moved into third place with 19 points.

Following a brief postponement while the breeze came in, racing got underway in winds of 8-10 knots, which increased to 10-14 with puffs in the high teens. Welles earned his third bullet of the Championship in today’s initial contest, trailed by Porter and Parker. Then it was Parker’s turn for line honors, his best finish of the series, while Laura and Ramon Benitez’s De colores followed. Leading the fleet back to the docks were Welles, Porter and Parker.

Ten races are scheduled from April 2 to 5.
