U.S. Multihull Championship 2014 - Day 2 -
Day 2 of the U.S. Multihull Sailing Championships sent sailors home satisfyingly fatigued due to strong winds and fierce competition. While local A Cat specialist Lars Guck continues to dominate with a picket fence scoreline (1-1-1-1-1-1-[1]), Andrew Gaynor now stands firmly in 2nd place after his average score redress from yesterday went into effect. Gaynor attempts to explain this in today’s interview. Also featured are Chris Museler (4th) and Bob Orr (11th). Published on Sep 20, 2014
