Three races were completed Thursday at the J/111 North American Championship hosted by Lakeside Yacht Club in Cleveland, Ohio. Winds ranged from 13-17 knots and waves subsided to two feet. Peter Wagner's Skeleton Key locked in two bullets and a second to take over the lead after five races (9 points). Rob Ruhlman's Spaceman Spiff and Andrew & Segdwick Ward's Bravo are tied at 16 points for second and third place.

Reigning J/111 World Champion Wagner's Skeleton Key was victorious in races three and four. Trailed first by Bill & Jackie Baxter's Fireball and Jeff Davis' Shamrock; then by Ward's Bravo and Davis' Shamrock. In the day's final contest, it was Ruhlman's Spaceman Spiff for the win, while Wagner settled for second and Davis was again third.
