Viper Worlds Day 2: Locals lead but nothing in it

The weather gods smiled on all sailors in the Goslings Viper 640 World Championship at Alamitos Bay Yacht Club in Long Beach, California, allowing the maximum four races to be run by PRO, Mark Townsend, in breezes that ranged from 6-8 knots for the first two heats and 10-12 for the last two.

When the dust settled, it was still the local sailors, Jay Golison, Steve Flam and Eric Doyle atop the leaderboard with a 6-4-7-(14) for 26 points.

After the throw out, Golison and crew are still ahead of Marcus and Andrew Eagan and Jackson Benvenutti in second, having finished 7-3-4-7.

Jeff Grange, Chris Parker and Tedd White moved up into the third position with the top ten shuffling from Day 1. The Aussies on Steal De Breeze, Nick Jerwood Matthew Jerwood/ Brian DeVries, are just a further point behind.

It is still anyone’s regatta to win. Sailing will resume on Friday after a layday tomorrow.
