Chesapeake Bay Championship

Chesapeake Bay Championship

Over Halloween weekend, Annapolis Yacht Club hosted the J/105 Chesapeake Bay Championship. The J/105s had a great turnout with 17 boats participating. The top three teams all sailed extremely well and posted mostly all top five finishes in their scorelines. Improving every single race was Scott Gitchell's crew on Tenacious, starting out with a fifth place, then posting a 3-2-1 tally to win bragging rights as Chesapeake Bay Champion. Just behind him, the duel became a tie-breaker scenario, with Andrew Kennedy's Bat IV winning that fight over Lewis' Mirage, both sitting on 15 points. For the balance of the top five, it is hard to imagine how close the racing was on the water. The next four boats in the standings all finished within six points of each other, the last race being the determining factor in the final outcome. By virtue of a third in the last race, Cherner's Crash took fourth place with 22 points while Konigsberg's Inigo took fifth in the finale, dropping them into fifth overall with 24 points. In fact, Inigo also had to win a tie-breaker over Robbins' Allegiance.  Annapolis YC website
