J/22 World Championship - Allan Terhune extends advantage    
Fri, 4 Oct 2013

Seven races are now in the books, and Allan Terhune of Arnold, MD has yet to relinquish his hold on first place at the J/22 World Championship, sponsored by Fidelity Investments. Dazzler, including crew of Katie Terhune, Kristine Wake and Marcus Eagan, has accumulated just 11 points thus far, including a bullet and a second in Thursday’s pair of races. ThreeDories.com, helmed by Brad Julian, holds second place with 31 points. Chris Doyle’s The Jug 4 1 stands two points further back in third.

Hosted by Sail Newport, the five-day event marks the 30th anniversary of the J/22. Although teams were initially sent to the inside course on Thursday, the breeze was unstable so the fleet returned to shore. After a brief time, the Race Committee decided to move to the ocean course where winds set in at 6 to 8 knots. J.R. Maxwell got on the podium in race six, with the familiar Terhune and Will Welles’ Cougar close behind. In race seven, Terhune won handily, while Julian and Martin Kulman’s New Wave completed the top three.

Racing continues through Saturday for the 71 teams from Canada, the Cayman Islands, South Africa and the USA. Complete results, regatta information and live racing updates are available at Event Website.
