VX One Midwinter Championship - All tied up after Day 2
Sat, 2 Feb 2013
On the second day of the VX One Midwinter Championship at the Davis Island Yacht Club, John Potter of Beaufort, SC scored first-place finishes in both races to bring him into a tie for first place.
Heading in to the final day of the event on Saturday, Potter stands with 12 points, as does David Reich of Birmingham, AL, with Donnie Brennan of Mobile, AL just one point behind them. Hosted by the Davis Island Yacht Club in Tampa, Florida, the Championship is the first stand-alone Midwinters for the young VX ONE Class.
Under sunny skies again and temperatures in the low 60s, winds began around 12 knots but dropped throughout Friday’s first race to 6-8 knots. Behind Potter in that contest were Brennan and Timothy Pitts.
By the conclusion of the next race, winds bottomed out around four knots. Potter and Brennan again took the top two spots, trailed by VX ONE builder Brian Bennett. The Race Committee waited on the water for more breeze to fill in, but it didn’t, and the 10 teams were sent to shore for the day.
