J/105 North Americans- Open for entries!

J/105s sailing off start (Larchmont, NY)- Everything is in full gear for this year’s J/105 North American Championship being held from October 20-23 and hosted by Larchmont Yacht Club on Long Island Sound.  October sailing on Western Long Island Sound will provide good breezes and pleasant temperatures.

Twenty-nine J/105’s, including teams from California, Texas, Canada and Bermuda, are already pre-registered.  Teams from Chile, including the Chilean Naval Academy’s cadets, are also expected to attend.  Register now online.

Most entrants will use the prior weekend’s Manhasset Bay Fall Series on October 15-16 as a warm-up as it is being held in the same racing area.  In fact, Long Island Sound Fleet 6 welcomes visiting teams to arrive really early and compete in the American YC Fall Series on Sept 24-25 and Oct 1-2 to become expert in the nearby waters.

J/105 owners interested in chartering a local boat or needing help with finding crew should contact Fleet 6 Captain Paul Beaudin at or 917-584-5194.  Paul will also set you up with a launching package at a nearby marina and a low-cost mooring for these regattas.  For Larchmont YC information   For more J/105 North American Championship sailing information
