White Wins J/80 East Coasts

(Solomons Island, MD)- The 2014 J/80 East Coast Championships were run in conjunction with the Screwpile Challenge Regatta hosted at Solomons Island, MD.  The big winner of this year’s regatta was John White.  Despite never winning a race but never finishing out of the top four, White’s remarkable 3-3-3-4 record for 13 pts won the regatta by a country mile.

Taking second in the regatta despite winning the first two races was David Andril’s VAYU.  Equally eye-opening was the performance of the third place finisher- Clarke McKinney sailing KNEE DEEP.  Despite winning the last two races, McKinney still had to win a tie-breaker to maintain third position.

Rounding out the top five were Ken Mangano sailing MANGO in fourth and Vince Kalish in WHITE LIGHTNING in fifth.   For more J/80 East Coasts sailing information
