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.
