Scoring six bullets, three seconds and one third-place finish (which was their drop), St. Francis Yacht Club members Bruce Stone and Nicole Breault dominated the two-weekend American Yacht Club Fall Series, not only winning the J/105 fleet in their East Coast boat Good Trade, but also earning the trophy for best overall performance in a one-design class. They were assisted by bowman Bill Higgins and trimmer Philipp Berner, both regulars on their SF Bay based J/105 Arbitrage. Also crewing were two different cadets each weekend from Mass Maritime Academy. Stone and Breault are lending their boat to Mass Maritime for the Storm Trysail Foundation’s Intercollegiate Regatta next weekend at Larchmont YC, then their team return to Larchmont for the Manhasset Bay Fall Series and the J/105 North Americans. Damian Emery's Eclipse placed second, and Harald Edegran/Jeremy Henderson' Conundrum third. For complete American YC Fall Series information, visit
