J/105 MORE JUBILEE Tops Class in Center Sound Series

Corinthian Yacht Club’s Center Sound Series kicks off the central Puget Sound racing season with three medium distance, one buoy rounding, 20-30 mile races. Saturday’s Three Tree Point Race, which usually takes the fleet from Shilshole to Des Moines and back, was re-routed back and forth and up and down the central Sound so that it could be easily shortened if the wind died. The course took the fleet to Blakely Rocks, across to Duwamish Head, to a temporary mark off Edmonds, back to West Point and finish for a total of nearly 27 miles. The 10-boat J/105 fleet, one of the largest in years, had close racing amongst the top three boats. In the end, it was Erik Kristen’s MORE JUBILEE taking class honors with an unassailable 2-1-1. Jim Geros’ LAST TANGO took second. Chris Phoenix on JADED earned the bronze.
