Third day is a charm for J/105 North Americans

Published on October 30th, 2021

Annapolis, MD (October 30, 2021) – After two days of waiting, 35 teams got their chance to compete today at the 2021 J/105 North American Championship. Finding the sweet spot between a lack of breeze and a fierce Nor’easter, day three completed four races 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 today 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 is planned for October 28-31.
