2019 J/24 North American Championship at Club Nautico Valle de Bravo - Day 2

by Julie & Christopher Howell 3 Apr 17:28 PDT 30 March - 5 April 2019

Another gorgeous day in Valle de Bravo, another day atop the leaderboard for Will Welles Bruschetta at the J/24 North American Championship. With boat owner Aroldo de Rienzo aboard as well as Rich Bowen, John McCabe and PJ Schaffer, Bruschetta lodged scores of 1,5,1 on Wednesday. Now able to discard the fifth in race five, Welles has a net score of 7 points in six races of the planned 10-race series.

Tony Parkers Bangor Packet benefited from a solid day to jump into second place overall, after recording a 3,1,3 for 14 net points. Kenneth Porters S moved into third place with 19 points. Twenty-seven J/24s are competing at Club Nautico Valle de Bravo in Mexico through Friday.

Following a brief postponement while the breeze came in, racing got underway in winds of 8-10 knots, which increased to 10-14 with puffs in the high teens. Welles earned his third bullet of the Championship in Wednesdays initial contest, trailed by Porter and Parker. Then it was Parkers turn for line honors, his best finish of the series, while Laura and Ramon Benitezs De colores followed. Leading the fleet back to the docks were Welles, Porter and Parker.
