Chris Alexander’s Isabelita notched a one, two, two, four, two in Friday’s five races at the VX One North American Championship to take a commanding advantage into the final day of competition. Hosted by Newport Yacht Club in Newport, Rhode Island, Alexander has totaled 19 points with a line of two, (five), four, two, one, two, two, four, two.

Phip Hallowell and Chuck Brown’s The Wagon moved into second place (44 points), and Tom Chiginsky’s VX140 remains in third (50 points).

After Alexander won Friday’s opening bout (with Kevin Northrop in the silver position and Lawrence Frost’s Flash Gordon in the bronze), Brian Bennett won the next four contests. Alexander was runner up in race six, and the Hallowell/Brown team third. Alexander again took second in race seven, as Chiginsky followed. Jim Myers’ Satisfaction grabbed second in the day’s fourth battle, with Hallowell and Brown behind. Alexander returned to the number two spot in the day’s last race, trailed by Myers.
