The J/105 North American Championship winner 'Convexity' was fully powered by Ullman Sails.
Don Wilson and his 'Convexity' crew raced a stellar regatta to earn themselves the 2010 J/105 North American title in Chicago.
'Convexity' sailed consistently in a wide range of conditions from 30 knots and large waves to light breeze and flat seas. Wilson posted five straight bullets in the first four days to help secure first overall. The 'Convexity' team includes Don Wilson, Nathan Hollerbach, Milosz Mogilnicki, Hans Pusch, Mauro Matias and Tod Reynolds. They finished the event with five bullets, two second-place finishes, and a ninth for a total score of 18 points.
Ullman Sails customers claimed six of the top ten spots, including Carter Williams on 'Creative Destruction' in fourth place, Blane Shea's 'Striking' in fifth place, Canadian Mike Mountford on 'Live Edge' in sixth place, California's Bernard Girod on 'Rock & Roll' in ninth, and Sarah Weersing/Bill Mathis' 'Lane 4' in tenth.
