At the 2013 Audi Melges 20 North American Championship, hosted by the Port Credit Yacht Club in Toronto, Canada on Friday, four races under breeze on conditions were conducted on opening day. Newly crowned U.S. National Champion John Kilroy on Samba Pa Ti barely edged out the fleet to lead the overall standings by two slim points.

Kilroy fought off heavy assaults from long-time Audi Melges 20 owner Californian Daniel Thielman on Kuai (who was sailing barefoot in 55 degree weather), and reigning Euro Champ Michael Kiss on Bacio. Thielman and Kiss finished second and third respectively for the day.

While Kilroy stands first submitting in a one, two, three, four performance, Kiss came on strongest grabbing two of the four bullets to be had. John Taylor's Ninkasi took the win in Race Four of the day claim fourth overall, followed by Richard Davies on Section 16 in fifth.

Racing will continue on Saturday and Sunday, with the new North American Champion being named and crowned post-racing.

Taming the beast-a conversation with Stuart Meurer of Parker Hannifin
While AC72 cats were fast, they difficult to control, so Oracle partnered with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way. If you watched videos of the AC72s racing in the 34th America’s Cup (2013), you’re familiar with the mind-boggling speeds that are possible when wingsail-powered catamarans switch from displacement sailing to foiling mode. While foiling is fast, there’s no disguising the platform’s inherent instability. Now, Oracle Team USA has teamed up with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way.
