Over the weekends of September 24-25 and October 1-2, the American Yacht Club hosted their annual Fall Series Regatta. Racing took place in Western Long Island Sound just south of Rye, NY. While the first weekend saw glorious weather and up to six races for the one-design Classes, the second weekend got blown out by the remnants of Hurricane Ian with near-gale force winds. The 17-boat J/105 fleet enjoyed a fantastic turnout. In the end, it was Dave Willis' team on SOLUTION, winning four of six races to crush the competition with all podium finishes. The next two steps on the podium were a fight between Paul Beaudin and Gardner Horan. The battle came down to the last race, with Horan's CUSH team posting a third, while Beaudin's LOU LOU posted a fourth. As a result, Horan's CUSH took the silver, with Beaudin's LOU LOU taking the bronze. For more American Yacht Club Fall Series information, visit https://yachtscoring.com/emenu.cfm?eID=15021.
