Final Shootout tomorrow. Day three will be an exciting day with Race 7 in the morning. B iggest winds of the event are predicted with 17-20 mph for the final race. With such a deep competition, the talk early on was that the title would come down to the last beat of the last race. It's looking like that will be the case for Race 7. The throwout race kicks in and that will tighten the standings up even more. Math says eight boats can still win but it is looking like an epic shootout between Cox and Tesar  tomorrow It will all boil down to the very last race.

Stay tuned for the final National Championship results  tomorrow  from the Melges Team.
