J/105 North American Championship at Annapolis Yacht Club - Overall

by Julie & Christopher Howell 31 Oct 2021 22:08 PDT 28-31 October 2021

As the 2021 North American Championship hosted by Annapolis Yacht Club in Annapolis, MD wrapped up on Halloween, it was Tim Russell's Ne*Ne who tricked the fleet during the seven-race series.

With crew John Claude, Bill Higgins, Kyle Hunt, Bob Little and Ted Wilson, the San Francisco-based team on J/105 hull #3 controlled the Championship, winning the title by 24 points. They never finished out of the top four, and will look to defend their title next year when San Francisco Yacht Club hosts the 2022 Championship. Bill Zartler's Deja Voodoo earned the silver position with 39 points, and fellow Texan Ken Horne's Final Final gained the bronze with 43 points. There were no discards in the Series.

Sunday's winds started at 8-10 knots and increased to 15-20. Race winners were Russell, Zartler and Bruce Stone/Nicole Breault on Arbitrage.

Overall Results: (top five)

1. Ne*Ne, Tim Russell 4 -2 -3 -1 -1 -2 -2; 15pts
2. Deja Voodoo, Bill Zartler 2 -7 -1 -7 -18 -1 -3; 39pts
3. Final Final, Ken Horne 14 -1 -5 -2 -6 -10 -5; 43pts
