Bermuda J105 Invitational Regatta

Bermuda J105 Invitational Regatta

The final day of competition (Saturday) in the Bermuda J/105 Invitational Regatta, sponsored by XL, got underway shortly after the breeze filled in. With everything to play, the teams had a single race to decide the local winner, and a single race to decide the international winner, plus a fun race back to Hamilton Harbour to round out the event. Race 9 had two general recalls before the race committee, led by Charles Tatem, resorted to starting under more punitive conditions - anyone over the line early now had to restart by rounding the end of the line. The racing finally got underway in the freshening conditions, and the win went to Back in Black, with Elusive and Yabsta taking second and third. Race 10 started under the black flag rule. This enabled an orderly start, and after three circuits of the course the win went to Mayhem, followed by Elusive and Back in Black. The event now concluded with a long distance race back to Hamilton Harbour, taking in the Small Sound and the channel up to dockyard. Mayhem took line honours and won the Bermuda Project Managers prize. The Tops Limited boat of the day was Back in Black. Results are: the Overall (XL Trophy) in 1st place was Elusive (21 points), followed by Passion (24 points) and Mayhem (42 points). The top International helmsmen (Bermuda Tourism Trophy) in 1st place was Bill Lakenmacher (11 points), followed by Steve Cucchiaro (15 points) and Greg Turman (17 points). The top local helmsmen (Goslings Trophy) in 1st place was Chuck Millican (6 points), followed by James Macdonald (13 points) and Jon Corless (16 points).   Royal Bermuda YC website
