J/70 Corinthian US National Championship at Little Traverse Yacht Club - Day 2

by Julie & Chris Howell 10 Aug 18:26 PDT 8-11 August 2019

Thirty-six all-amateur teams again reveled in glorious conditions on Little Traverse Bay in Michigan for the J/70 Corinthian US National Championship.

Chris Kostanecki's Jennifer moved to the top of the leaderboard, rebounding from a sixth in Saturday's opening contest (eventually discarded) with a 1,2 to hold a three-point advantage after six races. Friday's frontrunner Scott Sellers' Tres Burritos ended the day successfully, but two lower finishes in the earlier competitions dropped him to second place with 16 points. Peter Vessella's Sistership is five points in arrears of Sellers for third place.

Winds between 12-14 knots, puffy white clouds and temperatures in the 70s greeted racers on the middle day of the Championship. Henry Filter's Wild Child got off on the right foot in race four, topping Vessella's Sistership and Dave Dennison's Piranha. Kostanecki's Jennifer triumphed in the next battle, as Tod Sackett's FM and Peter Bowe's Tea Dance Snake got in on the action too. Sellers' Tres Burritos then got their third bullet of the regatta, shadowed by Kostanecki and Bowe.

Jackson Benvenutti of North Sails was again on the water to offer helpful advice to the Corinthian sailors. Racing concludes Sunday.
