Ramrod Takes Early Lead In Farr 40 East Coast Championship

Perfect conditions yield three races, yet over half the fleet is still within one point in overall scores

Annapolis, MD - Local knowledge sprinkled with some world-class talent allowed Annapolis-based Rod Jabin and his Ramrod team to take an early lead in today's first of four days of racing in the 2012 Farr 40 East Coast Championship. After three races, Ramrod leads the 11-boat fleet by three points.

"We're happy to be in the lead at this stage," said Jabin, "but it sure wasn't easy. We had some new sails delivered a few days ago, and no breeze to learn how to get them set up, so when the breeze came up it was a big scramble. But the class is also very tough, and it's been a while since we've been racing these boats at this level."

In fact, the last Farr 40 event Jabin sailed was here in Annapolis at the Rolex 2010 North American Championship, which he won decisively in a mostly-local 9-boat fleet. But with teams from Germany, Italy, Monaco, Turkey and the US here this week, the fleet is of higher caliber and on a mission: the Rolex Farr 40 World Championship held in Chicago in September. No wonder the next six places in the standings are bottle-necked in tie-breaks for 14 and 15 points.
