TOTALED MAYHEM Crowned J/30 N.A. Champion

J/30s sailing on Chesapeake Bay
(Annapolis, MD)- The 2019 J/30 North American Championship regatta was hosted by the Chesapeake J/30 fleet with the Annapolis Yacht Club as their co-host partner. The regatta was sailed from September 20th thru 22nd. A near record fifteen teams participated in the regatta, with a total of seven races run over the three days.

It was a wild and woolly regatta for many of the participants, particularly for the three teams at the top of the leaderboard. Leading after the five races by a significant margin was Russ Atkinson’s WILDCAT; posting a 4-3-1-1-1. However, a sixth race 13th torpedoed their stellar performance and their chances to win the regatta overall. Thereafter, despite winning the final seventh race, Atkinson’s WILDCAT team could not overcome their sixth race debacle. Winning in the end was Doug & Amy Stryker’s TOTALED MAYHEM with a 6-1-3-4-5-1-2 tally for 22 pts total. WILDCAT ended up taking the silver, while Doug Wallop’s CANNONBALL 2.0 sailed to a 3-5-4-8-2-2-4 for a total of 28 pts to take the bronze.  For more photos on regatta sponsor SPINSHEET, please go here  For more J/30 North Americans sailing information Add to Flipboard Magazine.
