Port Charlotte, Fla. (December 13, 2018) – While most of the U.S.A. was getting smacked by an early taste of wintry weather and unseasonably cold temperatures, the conditions were more than ideal for sailors in the 2.4 Meter class as they kicked off the 2019 CanAm Championship Series at Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club (CHYC) in Port Charlotte, Florida. With at least nine competitors from Canada, two from the Virgin Islands, one from Norway, and Americans coming from as far as Seattle and San Diego, a fleet of 20 started the championship series with back-to-back regattas on the Peace River.

2018 2.4mr US Nationals

The 2018 US 2.4mr Nationals were hosted by the Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club December 7- December 9. This event was also regatta #2 of the 2019 2.4mr CanAm Championship series.
Racing Friday started under sunny skies and an 8 mph breeze from the ENE. Race Committee handled the shifty, diminishing breeze and managed to get 4 races completed. Dee Smith finished day 1 in first(2,1,1,<4>), Tony Pocklington second(5,5,4,2), and Bruce Millar third (1,2,5,<9>). Day 2 produced similar conditions, diminishing breeze, though from the ESE shifting to the SE as the day progressed. 3 races were completed, a fourth race was abandoned as the wind died. Close racing under sunny skies with big oscillations presented opportunities for all. After day 2 racing the leaders were Dee Smith(2,2,1) 1st, Bruce Millar(1,6,6)2nd, Tony Pocklington(6,<9>,2)T 3rd, Bjornar Erickstad(4,4,3)T 3rd . Day 3 was not meant to be as a cold front pushed its way into the area with lightning and gusts up to 35kts. First place went to Dee Smith with 9 pts, Bruce Millar finished second with 21 pts, and Tony Pocklington taking the tiebreaker for third with 24 pts.
