Blustery Puget Sound Sailing Championship

The Saturday of CYC-Seattle’s Puget Sound Sailing Championship saw 18-22 knot winds, big waves, and bright sun. A total of 56 boats sailed the event, with three PHRF classes and five one-design Classes, four of which made up the south course right off Shilshole Bay Marina. CYC got in 9-11 races for all the fleets. Sunday was sailed in more sedate sunny conditions. The nine-boat J/105 fleet reveled in the circumstances, with Erik Kristen’s MORE JUBILEE team winning easily. Second was John Aitchison’s MOOSE UNKNOWN, and third was Chris Phoenix’s JADED. Rounding out the top five were Jerry Diercks’ DELIRIUM and Jeff Pace and Philiippe Le Mouel’s LIFTOFF in fourth and fifth, respectively. For more Puget Sound Series information, visit
