The J/105 North American Championship hosted by San Francisco Yacht Club in California continued Friday for 28 boats. Other than a seventh in Race 2, Randy Hecht's Niuhi has tallied only firsts and seconds for 15 points in six races. No scores will be excluded. Ryan Simmons' Blackhawk put together a solid day to move into second overall with 28 points. Ian Charles' Maverick remained in the top three with 34 points.

As with day one, Hecht's Niuhi began Friday on top, as Jeff Littfin's Mojo got in on the action with Simmons' Blackhawk behind. Simmons added his second bullet in the next match, while Hecht and Charles stayed close. Doug Bailey's Akula moved into fourth overall with a win in Race 6, with Hecht again in second and Shawn Bennett's Masquerade in third.

Racing continues through Sunday. Complete results available here.
