Eighteen teams gathered for excellent fall conditions in Massachusetts Bay on the initial day of the J/105 North American Championship hosted by Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, MA. Winds predictably started off from the Northeast and clocked East and Southeast as the day went on. CYC PRO Mark Toso got off three races for a action-filled first day of competition.

Taking the first race of the championship was Canadian boat The Usual Suspects, led by skipper Terry Michaelson, followed by Bruce Stone and his boat Good Trade in 2nd, and Texan Ken Horne on Final Final in 3rd. In the second race, Horne took 1st, Stone and crew were 2nd again, and fellow Californian Tim Russell and Ne*Ne came in 3rd. For the 3rd and last race of the day, a pair of local boats, Charlie Garrard's Merlin and Steven Goldberg's Air Express, were 3rd and 2nd respectively, while Good Trade took 1st, and moved into 1st overall after Day One. Ken Horne and Final Final was in 2nd, and local favorite Merlin, skippered by Charlie Garrard, 3rd.

While Good Trade has a healthy but by no means insurmountable lead, the battle for 2nd through 4th places continues to be tight and hard fought, like the previous warm-up regattas, the Ted Hood and prior to that, the Marblehead NOOD.
