Morgan Stanley J/22 Midwinter Championship at Southern Yacht Club - Day 2

by Julie & Christopher Howell 20 Mar 2021 18:43 PDT March 18–21, 2021

Seven races are in the books at the J/22 Midwinter Championship hosted by Southern Yacht Club in New Orleans, LA, and only one point separates the leaders heading into the final two races Sunday.

Day one leader Glenn Darden's Baby Doll opened Saturday with a pair of bullets, but added a 5 and 13 (their discard) for 11 net points. Travis Odenbach's Honeybadger notched all top-three finishes on the day, and now dropping a 10 from Friday, bringing him within a single point of the lead. Casey Lambert's Blackburn Marine Racing remains in third place with 27 net points.

The 30 J/22s enjoyed a brightening day on Lake Pontchartrain in winds averaging 7-10 knots and lighter chop. Darden picked up where he left off the prior day with back-to-back wins (first ahead of Lambert and Odenbach, then again topping Odenbach and Benz Faget's Fats). Odenbach took race six for his second victory of the series, followed by Boo Heausler's Rebound Girl and Alexander Schwinn's Tilt. Mark Foster's Pressure Drop led the fleet back to shore, as Odenbach placed second allowing him to close in on the overall Championship, and Faget came in third.
