2015 Offshore New England Championship J/70 division
In somewhat light conditions at the Marblehead ONE Regatta, the PROs from the three principal yacht clubs (Eastern, Boston, Corinthian) running the regatta did an admirable job starting up to nine races for some of the fleets. It was the Smith family on AFRICA who took Class honors in the J/70s with a near sweep of all five races. The young crew of Tyler Doyle and Chris Boulter on USA 245 took second place with steady finishes in the top three. Also sailing a consistent series in the top five was RASCAL with Henry Brauer and Stew Neff. RASCAL’s steadiness earned them a spot on the podium to take third overall. Daan Goedkoop’s REGATTA FLUFF took fourth position, and in fifth place was Frank Arabia’s COWABUNGA. For more ONE Championship regatta sailing information, visit www.oneregatta.org.
