Duking it out at J/24 North Americans

Published on April 4th, 2019

Valle de Bravo, Mexico (April 4, 2019) – After eight stunning races, two Americans will battle for the title of 2019 J/24 North American Champion: Will Welles’ Bruschetta and Tony Parker’s Bangor Packet.

Welles suffered a UFD penalty in today’s opening contest, which became his discard, leaving him with 15 net points. Parker continued his ascent to the top, securing a 2,1 on the day, to close within just two points of Welles.

The third and fourth place finishes will also be a nail-biter, as Kenneth Porter’s S and Mark Laura’s Baba Louie are separated by a mere point (Porter’s 28 to Laura’s 29).

Laura’s Baba Louie began today with their first victory of the week, shadowed by Parker and Natalie Harden’s Giggles. Parker took the next win, while Ramon Benitez’s De colores and Welles settled for second and third.

Twenty-seven J/24s will conclude the Championship tomorrow at Club Nautico Valle de Bravo, with two final races planned.

Ten races are scheduled from April 2 to 5.
