Jesus Lizard takes lead at J/24 Midwinters

Published on February 27th, 2021

Miami, FL (February 27, 2021) – Twenty-nine teams again enjoyed ideal conditions on Biscayne Bay for day two of the 2021 J/24 Midwinter Championship. With breeze between 10-15 knots, blue skies and above-average temperatures, four more races went in the books, bringing the total to eight (now including a discard).

Able to drop a ninth from yesterday, John Mollicone’s Jesus Lizard (above) now counts only top three finishes for 17 net points and the lead, heading into the final two scheduled races tomorrow.

Day one leader Carter White on Wind Monkey continued solid scores but dropped to second with 23 net points. Travis Odenbach’s Honeybadger joined Mollicone in placing among the top three in all of Saturday’s races to move into third overall with 30 net points.

Gilberto Rivera’s Urayo team from Puerto Rico rocked the day with three bullets. The first came in the opening race in a duel they won with Odenbach and Mollicone. Odenbach and Mollicone moved up to first and second in the next contest, with Kirk Reynold’s Tyrus in third. Rivera’s second victory came in race seven, again with Mollicone and Odenbach staying at the front of the fleet. Mirroring how the day began in the last match, Rivera, Odenbach and Mollicone comprised the top spots.

Racing is scheduled for February 26-28.
