The weather gods smiled on the sailors of the Goslings Viper 640 World Championship at Alamitos Bay Yacht Club (Long Beach, CA). The maximum four races were run by PRO Mark Townsend in breezes that ranged from 6-8 knots for the first two heats to 10-12 for the last two.
When the dust settled, it was still 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 & Andrew Eagan and Jackson Benvenutti (Mandeville, LA) in second having finished 7-3-4-7. Jeff Grange, Chris Parker and Tedd White (Santa Barbara, CA) moved up into the third position with the top ten shuffling from Day 1 with it still anyone’s regatta to win. Sailing will resume on Friday after a layday tomorrow.
