Late afternoon in the quarter-finals found Robertson over Perry 2-0, and the Negodnikov vs. Barkow and Canfield vs. Hardesty tied, each winning one match.

Racing will continue early Saturday morning, with very light wind conditions predicted.

Lots of protests, lead changes and a few photo finishes highlighted the day. The young Tiller team came on strong today, winning matches against Robertson, Perry and Corbett. All three matches found Tiller behind on the first leg, only to catch up and overcome them by the finish. Hardesty pushed Canfield over early in his one match in the quarter finals and went on to win.
