J/27 North American Championship Preview

J/27s sailing offshore (Oakville, ONT, Canada)- From Aug 5th to 7th, the Oakville Yacht Squadron will be hosting a fleet of eight J/27s for their 2016 North American Championship to be sailed on Lake Ontario, just west of the famous downtown Toronto city waterfront.

Returning to defend his title is Andrew Riem’s CURVED AIR from the host Oakville YS.  They will be chased hard by Canadian teams like Bob Kelly’s LINE DRIVE, Andre Beese’s MESSING ABOUT, and Rich O’Hare’s TAKE FIVE.  The two American teams are Pat Ryan’s MISS TRIXIE from Metairie, LA (the long-distance traveler winner!) and Matt Sanderson’s AMETHYST from Geneseo, NY.  For more J/27 North Americans sailing information
