On the strength of day one's 1-2-1 scores and top-ten finishes in Saturday’s two final races, Jim Richardson from Newport, RI and his team on the Quantum-powered Barking Mad won the 20-boat 2012 Farr 40 Pre-Worlds, held at Chicago YC. Being the last of five-event 2012 Farr 40 North American Circuit, the Pre-Worlds win also gives Richardson the overall series title. Quantum sail designer Dave Armitage is a member of the Barking Mad team in Chicago, where the Farr 40 World Championship is now underway.
