J/105 North American Championship at Annapolis Yacht Club - Day 3

by Julie & Christopher Howell 30 Oct 2021 21:02 PDT 28-31 October 2021

Thirty-five J/105s have gathered for the 2021 North American Championship hosted by Annapolis Yacht Club in Annapolis, MD. Mother Nature stepped in on the first two days of scheduled races, losing day one due to lack of breeze, and then day two to a Nor'easter barreling through. It took to day three to put scores on the scoreboard, as four races were completed under sunny skies and winds of 12-15 knots.

Holding the top three podium positions are non-local boats, led by Tim Russell's Ne*Ne of California with 10 points (4,2,3,1). In second place is Bill Zartler's Deja Voodoo of Texas with 17 points. Also from Texas, in third place is Ken Horne's Final Final with 22 points.

Damian Emery on loulou kicked off Saturday successfully, tailed by Zartler and Andrew Kennedy's Bat IV. Horne's Final Final took the next victory, ahead of Russell and then the Mirage team led by Cedric Lewis and Fredrik Salvesen. Zartler earned the victory in race three, in front of Hugh Bethell's Jester and Russell. Russell moved up to the top spot in the final contest, with Horne and Kennedy following to shore.

Racing concludes Sunday. Complete results available here.
