The breeze came in on day 3 of the Farr 30 Worlds, up to 20 knots with steep waves gave everyone some good times and bad, with Groovederci dropping back to third, Barking Mad once again in second, and Annapolis boatyard owner Rod Jabin leading the way. Two races in a forecast 15-20 tomorrow will decide it, perhaps inside Narragansett Bay - just 4 points separates the three boats and you can watch it happen on their Facebook page tomorrow starting around 1030 AM. At the same time, there’s a three-way battle for supremacy amongst the Aussie expats; Jeremy Wilmot is in 8th as tactician aboard Just Plain Nutz, cousin David Chapman is aboard Topas in 6th, and cousin Pauly Atkins is in fifth, shown here aboard Bliksem, getting a bit wonky. Meredith Block photo; day three gallery is here. Clean interviews Jabin here.
