Brian Keane wins J/70 US Corinthian Nationals

Published on August 6th, 2017

South Dartmouth, MA (August 6, 2017) – Brian Keane’s Savasana began today in third place at the second annual J/70 US Corinthian National Championship but his team of Adam Burns, John Goller and Mark Liebel closed strong to take the title.

The Savasana team posted two bullets and a fourth in the day’s three races to finish the 11-race series with 37 points, two points ahead of day two leader Heather Gregg’s Muse who settled for second place. Day one leader Glenn Darden on Hoss earned the bronze position with 49 points.

The 28-boat fleet reveled in spectacular conditions today on Buzzards Bay with sunshine and breeze between 10-16 knots with higher gusts. Keane took line honors in the first two contests, followed by Gregg and the Wulffs in race nine, and by Max Lopez’s Pinch & Roll and Peter Vessella’s Running Wild in race 10. Darden’s Hoss won the 11th and final meeting, ahead of the Wulffs and Hannah Swett’s Sparkle.

The competition was held August 4 to 6 as part of the Buzzards Bay Regatta hosted by New Bedford Yacht Club.
