2021 J/70 Corinthian US Nationals
Published on September 19th, 2021
Marblehead, MA (September 19, 2021) Lee Sackett and his team of Dave Kerr, Tom Sessions, and Ian Moran bested 31 all-amateur teams to emerge victorious at the 2021 Mustang Survival J/70 Corinthian US National Championship hosted by Eastern Yacht Club.
After a lack of wind prevented racing yesterday, four more races today allowed the event to score seven races. After leading on day one, Nobuyuki Imai’s Siesta finished second with local Stein Skaane’s Shred in third. Top female skipper was Cate Muller-Terhune’s Murder Hornet and youngest skipper (19-year-old) was Josh Becker.
The Class Rules were modified to allow communications by the coaches (Jud Smith and Tomas Hornos of Doyle Sails, Allan Terhune of North Sails, Kris Werner of Quantum Sails and Geoff Becker) before, between, and after racing through yesterday.
Today’s race winners were Massimo Soriano’s TEN, Cate Muller-Terhune’s Murder Hornet, Lee Sackett’s USA1516, and Stein Skaane’s Shred.
Racing was on September 17-19.
