Breezy Day Delights Sailors at J/24 World Championship

July 19, 2022

The standings tightened up on day two of the 2022 J/24 World Championship hosted by Corpus Christi Yacht Club in Texas USA. Paul Foerster’s Grand Slam 2 added a third consecutive bullet in Race three, but with a seventh in Tuesday’s next scheduled race, finished with 10 points overall. John Mollicone’s New England Ropes dominated the day with a 2,3, moving them into second place with 13 points. The next three positions are separated by only three points: Keith Whittemore’s Furio (15), Mike Marshall’s American Garage (16) and Nobuyuki Imai’s Siesta (17). Foerster also leads the impressive 27-boat Corinthian division, ahead of Imai’s Siesta and James Freedman’s LOL. Race three began under a Black Flag and was all clear. Winds were blowing 17-19 knots, and most boats had their small jibs up. As with Day 1, the course was five legs at 1.4 nautical miles. Race four also started under a black flag (all clear) with the same course five at 1.4 nautical miles. The breeze picked up to 19-22 knots in choppy waters. Following Foerster in the day’s opening match were Mollicone and Imai. Marshall’s American Garage cracked the top spot in the next race, as Travis Odenbach’s Bogus got in on the action and Mollicone was again in the top three. Thirty-eight boats are representing Argentina, Chile, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Sweden, Trinidad and the United States. Racing continues through Friday.
