Published on September 17th, 2021

Marblehead, MA (September 17, 2021) Thirty-one all-amateur teams are competing in the 2021 Mustang Survival J/70 Corinthian US National Championship with the opening day offering overcast skies with breeze at 8-12 knots.

After three races, Nobuyuki Imai’s Siesta (above) holds a narrow one-point advantage over Henry Filter’s Wild Child (11 to 12 points). Only two notches further back is Lee Sackett’s USA1516.

Representatives from Doyle Sails (Jud Smith and Tomas Hornos), North Sails (Allan Terhune), Quantum Sails (Kris Werner), and Geoff Becker were on the water for yesterday’s practice race and today’s competition. The Class Rules have been modified to allow communications by these coaches before, between and after racing through Saturday. Evenings also feature post-race debrief sessions at EYC, including drone video and question-and-answer opportunities.

Today’s race winners were Charlie Pendleton’s Bad Hombres, Brian Keane’s Savasana, and Lee Sackett.

Racing is on September 17-19.
