J/Fest Chicago Celebrates Sailing Again

Following Chicago's pandemic guidelines, the Chicago Corinthian Yacht Club was able to host Chicago's first one-design keelboat regatta for just J/Crews - the inaugural J/Fest Chicago. The event took place August 29-30, sailing out of Montrose Harbor, with racing taking place on the waters of Lake Michigan. The J/105 fleet had a closely fought battle for first, with the top two boats tied at 11 points with identical records of 1-1-2-2-2-3. In the end, by winning the last race, Josh Lutton's KINSHIP won the gold, while Mike Sheppard's crew on FLYING PIG slipped to second. Rounding out the podium taking the bronze was Rich Stearns's GLIDER IV. For more J/Fest Chicago information, visit https://yachtscoring.com/emenu.cfm?eID=13130.
