North powered teams stack the top of the fleet in Sweden for Act 3 of the European Series
In ideal conditions for the Melges 24, the top places in Act 3 of the class’s European Series were taken by corinthian teams, making for a refreshing change for the Swedish and Nordic Championships. In blustery conditions, waves were big, winds were strong, and team spirits were high as boats enjoyed thrills and spills in the top of the fleet. North powered teams placed 2nd through 5th overall; Geoff Carveth’s Gill Race Team in 2nd, Wes Whitmeyer Jr. close behind in 3rd with his team on SlingShot, followed by skipper Jason Rhodes with his team, MiKEY. In 5th was Blow Slam Racing, with Norway’s skipper Peder Nergaard.
