Tim Russell wins J/105 North Americans

Published on October 31st, 2021

Annapolis, MD (October 31, 2021) – As the 2021 J/105 North American Championship hosted by Annapolis Yacht Club 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.

Ne*Ne 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.

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

Racing was on October 28-31.
