J24 World Championship
Cork, Kingston

One race today as the breeze finally died after the cold front leaving glassy conditions across the lake. Racing was again on the inner Alpha course and the fleet got off on an "I" flag start in a 4-6 knot easterly.

After yesterday's races, where the left paid huge rewards, most of the fleet favored the left side today with many boats finding themselves overstood on the left side. Rudy Wolfs and Andy Horton (USA) picked the layline well and found themselves in a commanding lead at the top mark. Those two never looked back and finished first and second respectively. With winds becoming variable, the committee again chose to shorten the course and finish after the second downwind leg before sending the fleet back to shore.

Post race competition continued with high-speed, bobsled style, dock cart races in the parking lot. Texan Curtis Tarpley's (USA) impressive run to the flagpole proved to be unmatched, and he remains the undisputed cart racing champion.

Boat racing is scheduled to begin one hour earlier for tomorrows final day.
