Chris Stone Edges Out Win at Charleston Race Week

Skipper Chris Stone steered Velocidad to victory in the J/24 fleet at Charleston Race Week, winning three races and taking third in three others. Velocidad finished equal on points with Robby Brown (St. Petersburg, FL), but won the tiebreaker based on posting one more bullet, and Stone earned his first class championship at Sperry Charleston Race Week. "Well the starts, particularly with the current running out fast, were very challenging. I’ve never been so far from a starting line with one minute to go in my life. So timing was critical," said Stone, from Middletown, NJ. "We were very fortunate to come out on top in a very tough fleet." For complete event details, visit
