J/105 North American Champion: Shawn Bennett on team Jose Cuervo

J/105 North American Champion: Shawn Bennett on team Jose Cuervo

Opening the regatta with what would prove to be his worst finish, a fourth, Shawn Bennett and his team on Jose Cuervo then racked up four first place finishes for a nearly perfect record against 26 other teams competing for the 2015 J/105 North American Championship, run concurrently with Rolex Big Boat Series at the St. Francis Yacht Club (San Francisco, CA). Shawn won not only the right to have his name inscribed on the J/105 NA half-model trophy, but also the St. Francis YC Commodore's Cup, and he received a coveted Rolex Submariner Watch. In second place was Mojo (Jeff Littfin), with Risk (Jason Woodley/Scott Whitney) in third place, last year's Big Boat Series winner Arbitrage (Bruce Stone) in fourth, and Blackhawk (Ryan Simmons) in fifth.   Event website and results
