2019 J/111 World Championship at Chicago Yacht Club - Day 2

by Julie & Chris Howell 22 Aug 2019 19:32 PDT 19-23 August 2019

The seas on Lake Michigan were rocking and rolling on Thursday, as was the leaderboard at the J/111 World Championship, hosted by Chicago Yacht Club. Martin Roesch's Velocity shot up to the chief position, posting a 1,4,6 on the day.

The 23 J/111s have now completed six races, and the Championship will conclude Friday, including the discard taking effect after the seventh race. Peter Wagner's Skeleton Key maintained consistent scores in the top 10, inching him up to second place with 34 points, only one behind Roesch. Rob Ruhlman's Spaceman Spiff dropped to third but is still in the hunt with 38 points.

Day one leader Andrew and Sedgwick Ward's Bravo suffered a 13th in the day's final contest, leaving them in fourth place, one tick behind Ruhlman. Waves reached five feet and higher, and breeze was 12 knots plus.

Roesch began the day victoriously, ahead of local boat Momentus led by Kevin Saedi & Raman Yousefi and the Wards on Bravo. Chicago Yacht Club's Michael Mayer & Steve Henderson guided Kashmir to success in the middle match, with Jorg Sigg's Varuna and Richard Witzel's Rowdy next. Rod Warren's Joust prevailed in the final round, shadowed by Wagner's Skeleton Key and Sigg.
