33 THOUSAND EMAILS Wins J/105 Chesapeake Champs!

J/105 sailing (San Diego, CA)- The J/105s were hosting their Chesapeake Bay Championships this past weekend at Annapolis YC. Competition was tight between John White's 33 THOUSAND EMAILS (who has finally decided to name his boat with somewhat relevant political terms, apparently) and Andrew Kennedy's BAT IV. Kennedy had three bullets in five races, and was on top for the weekend. But, it all came down to the final race, and Kennedy fell to fifth place, allowing White to come in on top by just a point.

The balance of the top five was three-way gunfight at the OK Corral.  The three teams- Lewis/Salvesen’s MIRAGE, Ben duPont’s CTRL ALT DEL (something to do with 33,000 emails?), and Hugh Bethell’s JESTER- all traded off top five finishes in the five races sailed.  In the end, the final race also determined the outcome of this trio, with MIRAGE taking the bronze, duPont settling for fourth and JESTER in fifth.  For more J/105 Chesapeake Bay Championship sailing information
