Oakcliff Grade 2 Invitational - Jury in control

Laurie Jury and Team Koke Kiwimatch have been unstoppable in Swedish Match 40s and the larger Grand Slam Series.

With two second place finishes in the Chicago Match Cup and the Detroit Cup, Jury was going to be hard to catch for Will Tiller and Full Metal Jacket racing. Then, at the Knickerbocker Cup last week in Manhasset Bay, which was also sailed in the Oakcliff Swedish Match 40s, Jury didn’t drop a single race.

He and Koke Kiwimatch were very nearly perfect again this week in the Oakcliff Grade 2 Invitational. They went 15-3 in the double round-robin and were perfect in the semifinals and finals, with 2-0 wins in each.

'We come from a big boat background,' said skipper Laurie Jury, 'and we’ve really struggled the last few years in small boats.' When asked what’s next for Koke Kiwimatch, Jury explained 'We’ve got the Nation’s Cup at Sheboygan,' referring to the US Sailing Center there, 'where we’re representing New Zealand, and after that it’s the Gold Cup in Bermuda.'

Nicolai Sehested and Tre-For Match Racing, who started poorly at 1-3, came back to take second in the event. 'We started to improve as the breeze picked up, and also as we gained hours in the boat,' said Sehested of the turnaround.

Bill Simon, the Race Director at the Oakcliff Sailing Center, offered his congratulations to the winners and thanks to the volunteers that made the event possible. 'The Oakcliff team rose to the occasion of hosting our first Grade 2. Especially notable were the breakdown crew of Andrew Wills, Ron Saccardo and Alec Snyder.'

For Oakcliff, the season continues with Grade 5 races in the Match 40s, the American Yacht Club Fall Series in IRC racers and Farr 40s, and Shield’s Nationals. As Oakcliff furthers it’s mission of raising the level of US sailing, racing sailors will benefit.
