VX ONE North American Championship - Eagans victorious in Pensacola

2012 VX ONE North American Championship - Marcus and Andrew Eagan
The VX ONE North American Championship has drawn to a close in Pensacola, Florida with Marcus and Andrew Eagan emerging triumphant. The Louisiana-based duo beat out 15 others to earn the victory with sixteen points over the nine races. They notched all top three tallies, after dropping an eight in race 6. Sean Fidler and Hayden Bennett claimed second place (23 points), and Skip Dieball and Jeff Eiber placed third (28 points).

The Eagan team came into the event with just one weekend of VX ONE racing experience under their belts, but credited their dinghy background with their quick learning curve on the VX ONE.


'This is a very forgiving boat,' Marcus Eagan summarized. 'People of all ages, weights and gender can enjoy it.' During the course of the regatta, competitors saw varying levels of wind, with 6-8 knots on Friday, 10-12 on Saturday and 14-16 at the start of Sunday, building to 18-20. 'It was a blast downwind, very exciting and fun,' Eagan shared. 'It was wild coming off those waves, but very stable. This is a fun Class!'

David Reich earned the win in Sunday’s lone race, with Eagan and Jeff Jones following.
