SOLSTICE Eclipses J/22 Turkey Bowl

J/22s sailing Chesapeake Bay (Annapolis, MD)- The Severn Sailing Association held their annual pre-Thanksgiving regatta- the Turkey Bowl- in Annapolis, MD for the local J/22 fleet on the weekend of November 12th to 13th.

After enjoying a weekend of delightful racing on the Chesapeake Bay, the SSA PRO managed to run four races.  Taking the honors as Chief Turkey was the team on the mighty SOLSTICE, comprised of David Waiting, Natalie Burls and Pedro Espina with a record of 2-1-1-1 for 5 pts- a virtual eclipse of the fleet.  Second overall was determined on a tie-breaker at 12 pts each!  Taking the tiebreak was the crew of HOT TICKET with Jason Goscha, Jonah Seiger and Dan Wilson.  Losing based on having just all 3rds was Team VENTUS, with Scott Gelo, Jennifer Bickford, and Grant Beach on the rail.
