J/70s Open Corinthian US National Championship at Little Traverse Yacht Club - Day 1

by Julie & Chris Howell 9 Aug 17:10 PDT 8-11 August 2019

Little Traverse Yacht Club in Harbor Springs, MI welcomed 36 all-amateur teams to the fourth annual J/70 Corinthian US National Championship under sunny skies, temperatures in the 70s and winds in the mid-teens. Scott Sellers' Tres Burritos excelled in the epic conditions with a pair of firsts and a fourth for 6 points in three races. Chris Kostanecki's Jennifer tallied a 3,3,4 for 10 points and second place. Two teams—Jake Christy's Pale Horse and Peter Vessella's Sistership—are tied at 14 points for the next two positions.

Local Fleet Captain Sellers' Tres Burritos kicked off the event with a win, as Henry Filter's Wild Child and Kostanecki's Jennifer followed. Peter Bowe's Tea Dance Snake from Maryland racked up the next bullet, ahead of Sarah Renz's Berteau Group and Kostanecki again in third. Sellers secured the day one lead in the final contest, notching his second victory. Christy's Pale Horse and Vessella's Sistership completed the top trio.

Representatives from North Sails (Jackson Benvenutti) and Quantum Sails (Travis Odenbach) were on the water for Thursday's practice race and Friday's competition. Both nights also featured "Hear from the Pros" sessions at LTYC, including video education and question-and-answer opportunities.

Racing continues through Sunday.
