Terry McLaughlin and Rod Wilmer's Mandate built a perfect scoreline through five races at the Stella Artois J/105 North American Championship, until Bruce Stone and Nicole Breault's Good Trade won Saturday's final race. The Canadian team on Mandate holds a nine-point advantage over local Damian Emery on Eclipse going into the final day of racing on Sunday. Good Trade rests in third overall with 21 points.

After racing was postponed Friday at Larchmont Yacht Club in New York due to a lack of wind, a cold front drastically changed conditions on Saturday. Temperatures dropped into the forties under gray skies, in winds that began at 12-15 knots and quickly jumped to 18-20 with major puffs. Trailing Mandate in the first race were Texan Bill Lakenmacher on Radiance and Emery. The familiar three boats of Mandate, Eclipse and Good Trade comprised the top three in the second match, and again in the next—just flip-flopping to Good Trade, Mandate, and Eclipse.

Racing concludes Sunday for the 37 teams representing Bermuda, Canada, Great Britain and the USA. Photos are available on the J/105 Facebook page, and complete results may be found at
