USA J/24 Nationals Preview

J/24 USA Nationals (Seattle, WA)- The Corinthian YC of Seattle YC is celebrating its 125th Anniversary and as part of that program, they are hosting the USA J/24 Nationals on Puget Sound.  An excellent, and quite talented, fleet of 27 boats from across America will be vying for the championship title starting on May 17th and ending on May 21st.

Perhaps the strongest group of sailors will be comprised of those Washington teams that have both North American and International experience.  It would not be surprising to see several of these teams at the top of the leaderboard, such as Mark Laura’s BABA LOUIE, Keith Whittemore’s TUNDRA ROSE, Mark Ross’ ATOM ANT, Richard Bustamante’s HABANERO, and Scott Milne’s TREMENDOUS SLOUCH.

Joining them from all points of the compass rose are top crews like Will Welles’ COUGAR USA 5208 from Portsmouth, RI, Wayne Pignolet’s JOYRIDE from Sandpoint, ID, and Nobuyuki Imai’s SIESTA from Wakayama, Japan.  For more USA J/24 Nationals sailing information Add to Flipboard Magazine.
