Dan Thielman won the first race on day 2 over a hard charging Jim Wilson. Grabbing 3rd place was the New Bedford YC team led by Caleb Armstrong.

Race Five saw John Kilroy put together a convincing race win followed by Russia's Igor Rytov. The younger Kilroy, Liam, had an amazing first downwind going from 17th to finish third.

In the final race of the day a big left shift descended after the start allowing those who extended straight off the line to dig into the leftie and find themselves in a good place at the top mark.

2016 Melges 32 World Champion Alessandro Rombelli had a great start and extended left to lead at the top mark.

Rombelli held on for the win with Jason Michas in second and a hard charging Rob Wilber made a gain on the last downwind to grab third.
