J/24 North American Championship at Sayville Yacht Club - Day 1

by Julie & Christopher Howell 18 Jun 22:21 PDT

Thirty-two J/24s kicked off the 2021 Good Samaritan Hospital J/24 North American Championship hosted by Sayville Yacht Club in Blue Point, New York. Conditions were beautiful on Great South Bay, as winds began around 8 knots and increased into the teens throughout the three races in a light chop.

Reigning J/24 World Champion Keith Whittemore on Furio controlled the day with two bullets and a fourth for 6 points. Travis Odenbach's Honeybadger closed Friday with a victory, securing second-place overall with 8 points. Mike Marshall's American Garage posted consistent finishes of 4,3,3 for 10 points and third place. Leading the Corinthian division is Mark Hillman's Sisu.

Seattle-based Whittemore won the opening two contests, first ahead of Odenbach's Honeybadger and Al Constants' Blitz, then besting Tony Parker's Bangor Packet and Marshall's American Garage in the second race. Following Odenbach in the last battle were Hillman's Sisu and Marshall.

Racing continues through Sunday.
