J/24 World Championship 2011 Day 2 Jorge Cousillas – El Ojo Nautico
The J/24 World Championship has now wrapped up the second day of competition in Buenos Aires which was sailed amid champagne sailing conditions. One the second day, Newport, Rhode Island’s Tim Healy extended his lead over the fifty-eight boat strong fleet.

consistent top-five finishes allowed him to claim a 20 point lead over Argentina’s Francisco van Avermaete, who retained the second place position after two more challenging races, each started under a black flag.

The first race was started in a ten knot breeze, building to fifteen knots by the end of the race. After a significant right shift on the first leg, Francisco Campero aboard Audi crossed the line first but was scored BFD giving Peru’s Luis Olcese the race win. For the second race the wind had increased to 18-20 knots and Healy found his form, leading the fleet wire-to-wire to finish the day. Back on shore, the competitors were treated to authentic paella and ice cream at the Yacht Club Argentino.

Top-five after four races:

1. Tim Healy (USA) – 13 pts, 2. Francisco van Avermaete (ARG) – 33 pts, 3. Luis Olcese (PER) – 35 pts, 4. Matias Seguel (CHI) – 38 pts, 5. Miguel Saubidet (ARG) – 38 pts.



Ten races are scheduled and racing will continue through Saturday. Live on-the-water updates about the racing can be found on the regatta Facebook page. You can also visit the event website.
