Out-of-towners dominated the J/105 fleet at the Manhasset Bay Fall Series held in Western Long Island Sound on October 15-16, a precursor to the North American Championship being held this week in the same waters. Team Mandate from Toronto, skippered by Terry McLaughlin, won in convincing fashion, posting a 2,1,2,1,1,1,(2) for 6 points, followed by San Franciscans Bruce Stone/Nicole Breault on Good Trade with 15 points, winning the tie-breaker over Fred deNapoli's gang from Marblehead on Allegro Semplicita. Chamber of Commerce fall weather greeted sailors with temperatures in the low/mid 60s and winds in the 4-8 kt range Saturday and 14-18 kt on Sunday, offering a chance for the 13-boat fleet to test out both light air and medium-heavy air skills and settings. The John B. Thomson, Sr. trophy was awarded to Mandate as having the best overall performance in one-design racing. Complete results are available by clicking here.
