J/88 North American Championship at Chicago Yacht Club - Day 3

by Julie & Christopher Howell 11 Aug 2018 18:27 PDT 9-12 August 2018

Some teams did more swimming than sailing at the J/88 North American Championship on Saturday, part of the Verve Cup Offshore Regatta at Chicago Yacht Club.

After a long postponement, 14 J/88s finally embarked on one race, which was enough for Laura Weyler's Hijinks to return to the top of the leaderboard. Hijinks' bullet, paired with an 8 by day two leader Ben Marden's Banter, leaves Weyler's crew with a six-point advantage heading into the final day of the Championship on Sunday.

Douglas Newhouse's Yonder maintained third place with 32 points.

Following Hijinks in Saturday's lone contest in about 6 knots of breeze were Mike Bruno's Wings and Newhouse's Yonder.
