Hosting the fifth annual event from August 19-21 was Eastern Yacht Club, in conjunction with their local partners the Corinthian Yacht Club and the Boston Yacht Club. The nine-boat J/70 fleet saw five teams all finishing within five points of each other. Winning by a point was Dave Franzel’s SPRING. The balance of the podium was determined by a tiebreaker at 23 points each. Winning the countback for the silver medal was Rich Witzel’s ROWDY over Pearse Dowd & Daan Goedkoop’s LOCOMOTION, who had to settle for the bronze. Just one point back from them was Bill Lynn’s KEY PLAYER with 24 points. And, rounding out the top five was Jim Raisides & Charlie Pendleton’s BAD HOMBRES with 27 points.
