Showing heavy-air aplomb most certainly learned sailing on her home waters in Northern California, Trish Sudell blitzed the fleet in the first two races, winning both and vaulting up the overall standings. However, her move to the top was arrested in the second half of the day with a first in a sixth. Fellow Richmond YC member Trent Watkins, who'd entered the day in a tie for first, had a steady if not spectacular quartet of races. He is now all alone in first, with Mark Allen in second three points back. Sudell is third.
