Showdown Set at J/24 North American Championship

Double bullets on the day Saturday for Aidan Glackin’s Mental Floss at the J/24 North American Championship launched the team up to second place after six races (now including a discard). Their dominance on the day didn’t knock leader Mike Stasko’s Redline off their throne, as the Corinthian team maintained all top-four scores to hold the overall advantage with 13 points to Glackin’s 14. John Mollicone’s Sparcraft stayed in the hunt in third place with 19 points. Winds on the penultimate day started at 12 knots, dropped to 6 then back to 10 before the Race Committee sent teams ashore ahead of rain squalls. Following Mental Floss in race five were Josh Kerst’s Instant Karma and Mollicone. Race six saw Glackin and Stasko in familiar 1-2 spots, while Steve Callison’s Whiskey River rounded out the top three. Racing concludes Sunday for the 28 teams at Sandusky Sailing Club in Sandusky, Ohio. Complete results may be found at, and photos are available on the International J/24 Class Facebook page.
