Narrow Margins Define Leaderboard At First Day Of M32 North America Championship

Sunday, 24 September 2017


Chicago (IL), USA (September 23, 2017) - The first day of racing in Chicago at the M32 North America Championship saw multiple storylines unfold as battle lines were drawn throughout the leaderboard with four sets of teams separated by only two points.

The eleven-strong fleet of M32’s took to Lake Michigan under blue skies with consistent 8-10 knots of breeze creating near-perfect conditions for seven races to be completed.

The close proximity of the racecourse to the city skyline combined with a mix of amateur and professional crews created the perfect blend of close, owner-driver racing in a big-city, stadium venue that thrilled sailors and spectators alike.

Following an opening win by local Chicago favorite, Convexity skippered by Don Wilson, Sally Barkow and The Magenta Project laid down a marker with three back-to-back wins.

However, two eighth-place finishes in the final two races of the day meant that their position at the top is not guaranteed going forward as Blicksem, REV, and Convexity stand within striking distance, only separated by two points.

“The racing was very up and down today”, said Pieter Taselaar skipper of Blicksem Racing.
