American Mike Ingham Holds Advantage at
J/24 North American Championship

Riviera Nayarit, Mexico--March 19, 2014--Mike Ingham of the United States continued posting steady scores to maintain his lead on day two of the J/24 North American Championship in Mexico. Sailing Digger, Ingham recorded another first, plus a fourth (which was dropped), leaving the team with only 7 points after five races. Ian Ilsley's Jobbit of Monaco kept his hold on second place with 11 points, as did Mauricio Santa Cruz's Bruschetta of Brazil with third place and 14 points.

 

The Riviera Nayarit again greeted competitors with stunning conditions for the 37 teams from Brazil, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Monaco, Peru, Sweden and the United States. With clear skies and warm winds starting off around 6-8 knots, Ingham notched his second win of the event, shadowed by Ilsley and Jeronimo Landauer's JJONE of Germany. Breezes piped up to 12-14 with gusts to 16 in the next duel, won by sixteen-year-old Brayan Matthew's Tango Jr. of Brazil. Fellow Brazilian Santa Cruz was runner-up, and American Tony Parker's Bangor Packet in third.

 

Racing continues through Friday. This event is a 2015 Pan American Games country qualifier. Photos may be found on the J/24 Class Facebook page, and complete regatta information may be found at http://j24mex.com/nac2014_copamexico/
