San Diego Yachting Cup

Yachting Cup racing was blessed with champagne San Diego sailing conditions on the first day, presenting an average of 13 knots steadily through the day. Visitors from neighboring cities got lucky with blue skies and sunshine. Seven classes sailed on two ocean courses just south of Point Loma, with a special Classics/Navigator course that started in the "near ocean course" and concluded with a Bay tour on the city front. The San Diego J/105 fleet always has tough competition. The top of the leaderboard was fought hard by two class veterans: Chuck Driscoll's JUICED and Stew Cannon's J-OK. JUICED started with two bullets on the first day. Closing with two bullets after a slower start was Cannon's J-OK. However, that was not enough to close the gap, as the JUICED team won with 11 points total. Second went to Cannon's crew on J-OK with 14 points. Rounding out the podium was John & Elena Bennett's BOSS LADY with 20 points. For more San Diego Yachting Cup information, visit
