Furio dominating J/24 North Americans

Published on June 19th, 2021

Blue Point, NY (June 19, 2021) – Another beautiful day allowed 32 J/24s to complete three more races at the Good Samaritan Hospital J/24 North American Championship, and it was day one leader Keith Whittemore’s Furio which added an additional two wins to increase their advantage heading into the final day of competition tomorrow.

Now discarding a fourth, Furio tallies just 6 points in six races. Mike Marshall’s American Garage moved up to second place overall with 12 points, three ahead of Travis Odenbach’s Honeybadger. Leading the Corinthian division is Mark Hillman’s Sisu.

Day two began with winds around 8 knots, as Marshall’s American Garage took line honors with the familiar Whittemore and Odenbach completing the top trio. Whittemore’s Furio took their third victory of the Championship in the day’s middle duel when the breeze increased to the low teens, trailed by Carter White’s YouRegatta and Marshall. Whittemore triumphed again in the next race, followed to shore by Marshall and Aidan Glackin’s Mental Floss.

Racing is planned for June 18-20.
