Milev wins J/24 Canadians

J/24 Rossi Milev- Canadian Nationals (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)- It was one of the best turn-outs in years for the J/24 class in Canada.  Twenty teams competed at the J/24 Canadian Championship, held September 18-20 in Toronto, Ontario.  The regatta was hosted by Ashbridges Bay YC, known for its spacious clubhouse with bar and restaurant in the heart of Toronto’s Eastern Beaches community.

Rossi Milev’s COUGAR AIR dominated the 9-race event, posting all top three scores to win prior to the final race, in fact they did not sail the last race.  Taking 2nd place as well as the Women’s J/24 Canadian Championship was Katie Coleman Nicoll skippering QUICK NICK from Port Credit YC at the western end of the lake (same club that Milev is a member of).  To round off the podium, Nick Jako’s TAZ was third overall, one of the only other boats to grab two wins off the bullet-hunting COUGAR AIR team!  The balance of the top five included Ted Bartlewski’s DRIVERS WANTED in 4th and Kevin O’Brien’s FUGUE STATE in 5th position.   For more J/24 Canadian Nationals sailing information
