Busy fall schedule!

We may be in the dog days of summer, but J/109's on the East Coast still have several regattas coming up! Between the IRC Championship of Long Island Sound (which is also the J/109 LIS Championship), AYC Fall Series (J/109 East Coast Championship), and Storm Trysail's annual Intercollegiate Offshore Regatta, there is plenty of racing action still to come!

SKOOT wins 2014 North American Champsionship

Jim Vos' Skoot, out of Breakwater Yacht Club (Sag Harbor, NY), sailed to victory in the 2014 J109 North American Championship, which took place during Race Week at New York Yacht Club. After the first day of racing was cancelled due to fog and stormy weather, nine races were sailed over three days, with Skoot sailing a very consistent regatta, finishing with a score of 39(4.3 average). Don Filippelli's Caminos was second with 43 points (4.8 average) and Emoticon, captained by Jonathan Rechtschaffer, finished third with 44 points (4.9 average).
