Good Trade, led by Nicole Breault and Bruce Stone, is in first place with 12 points after Day 2 of the J/105 North American Championship hosted by Corinthian Yacht Club in Marblehead, MA on Friday.

Conditions were considerably stronger than on Day 1, with steady wind with from the Northeast and ENE between 10-15 knots and building as the day went on, along with the seas, in anticipation of Hurricane Dorian's brush by on Saturday.

Taking the first race of the second day of competition (Race 4) was Tim Russell's Ne*Ne out of Tiburon and St. Francis YC, followed by Texan Ken Horne on Final Final in second, and Marblehead boat Merlin, skippered by Charlie Garrard. Team Good Trade came in fourth, but made up for it in the next race by taking first place, and then a second for Race 6, to retain their top spot.

Final was again second in Race 5, and fifth in Race 6 for a total of 19 points, followed closely by Ne*Ne with a 6th place in Race 5, and first place in Race 6 for 23 points and third overall by tiebreak, though numerically tied with Merlin, who rolled a 3-4-3 for the day for fourth overall after two days of competition. Terry Michaelson's The Usual Suspects, winner of the first race of the Championship, has clawed back into fifth place overall, taking third in Race 5.

There is no racing on Saturday, September 7, due to high winds and sea state anticipated as Hurricane Dorian grazes the coast during the day. Sunday's forecast calls for much more favorable conditions, so the time of the first warning signal has been changed from 1200 hours to 1100 hours in order to make up for some of the lost time.
