Halifax Race - J/Teams in top three classes


'Marblehead-to-Halifax Ocean Race'    Fletcher Boland    Click Here to view large photo

The 35th Marblehead to Halifax race commenced in light airs for 80 boats that were taking part and not much else changed for the balance of the blast across the Bay of Fundy/ Gulf of Maine to Halifax, Nova Scotia-- except the addition of more fog. The numerous J offshore teams performed well in the challenging conditions in the ORR, IRC and PHRF division.

In IRC two class, the famous J/105 team sailing the J/44 Kinscsem, Joerg Esdorn and Duncan Hennes from New York YC and American YC, wished they had more wind or reaching. Nevertheless, they managed to secure sixth in what was less than satisfactory conditions for J/44s.

The IRC three class saw Fred Allardyce's J/40 Misty sailing a fantastic race to take third in her class.

Over half of PHRF two division were J/Teams and leading the way to the finish line was Jeff Eberle's J/130 cilista, winning by nearly two hours. In third was sistership saga sailed by Kris Kristiansen followed by Glenn Gault's seasoned J/120 team on Rebecca. They were followed by Mark Surrette's J/111 Blast in sixth.

Five J's sailed PHRF three with a trio of sharp J/109 teams in the class, but it was a 'classic J/35' that took home all the silverware! Ann Petley-Jones's J/35 Harrier won her class by just 21 seconds corrected time! In fifth was the first J/109, Paul Rafuse's WISC, and next was Gary Weisberg's Heat Wave.

Finally, the lone wolf in PHRF Cruising, Reggie Goodday's beautiful J/44 Akubra from Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron, took top honors winning by an amazing 12 hours on corrected time!
