J/22 North American Championship at CORK in Kingston, Ontario, Canada - Day 1

by Julie & Christopher Howell 15 Jul 2023 00:38 BST July 13-16, 2023

Twenty-two teams took to the waters of Lake Ontario for the inaugural day of the J/22 North American Championship at CORK in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

After strong winds swept through the area on Thursday, the breeze was slow to rejuvenate Friday. But competitors only had to wait a short time before the wind came up to 8 knots and continued to increase during three races to the low teens. Travis Odenbach's Honeybadger, with Kris Werner and Ian Coleman, excelled in the conditions, posting scores of 2,1,3 for 6 points. Glenn Darden's Baby Doll (10 points) and James Freedman's Miss Conduct (11 points) compiled solid days for second and third place, respectively.

With sunny skies and warm temperatures, Jeff Progelhof's Schitzen Giggles opened the Championship with a victory, ahead of Odenbach's Honeybadger and Freedman's Miss Conduct. Odenbach and Progelhof switched places in Friday's middle race, with Darden's Baby Doll in third. Darden kept his momentum going to win the final contest, while Chris Doyle's The Jug 4 1 and Odenbach completed the top trio.

Sailors gathered on the docks at CORK for an afternoon debrief, followed by dinner hosted at Kingston Yacht Club. Racing continues through Sunday, and nine races are planned.
