Six races are now in the books at the J/24 US National Championship hosted by The Lake George Club in Diamond Point, NY. With the discard coming into effect, the leaderboard underwent a shuffle on the regatta’s middle day for the 42 teams. Travis Odenbach’s Honeybadger jumped up the standings to first place after posting a pair of seconds Saturday (and dropping a 13 from day one) for 8 net points and the lead. Two teams are tied at 14 for the next two positions: Tony Parker’s Bangor Packet and Mike Marshall’s American Garage. Mike Stasko’s Redline continues to lead the 20-boat Corinthian Division. Temperatures declined Saturday, as did the wind speed, allowing two races. Breeze began around 5 knots and built to 8 before easing as the day went on. Finn Hadlock’s Boreas opened with the win, followed by Odenbach and Bill Fastiggi’s Fawn Liebowitz. Parker earned the next victory, with Odenbach again runner-up and Carter & Molly White’s You Regatta in third. Teams came ashore in the early afternoon with hopes of returning to the racecourse, but Mother Nature did not cooperate. Competitors then enjoyed a formal dinner with a live band and fireworks, a Lake George Club tradition. Racing concludes Sunday. Complete results may be found at, and photos are available on the USA J/24 Class Facebook page.
