Santa Cruz is new leader at J24 Worlds

Despite a black flag disqualification in the first race of the day when the J24 BMW World Championship resumed in Howth, Ireland, Ian Southworth retained his third place overall after three more races were completed.

Defending World Champion Mauricio Santa Cruz from Brazil is the new leader, adding a 4, 2, 3 to go two points clear of Tim Healy of the USA who moves into second, two points ahead of Southworth. Healy won race 3 from Bob Turner of Castle Cove SC, who then went one better with a win in race 4 ahead of Santa Cruz and Southworth.

It was then Southworth's turn in the limelight, winning race 5 with Healy and Santa Cruz following in his wake. Fourth was former series leader Keith Whittemore of the USA, also recovering from a BFD in race 3. He takes fifth overall.
