Sunny, Choppy Verve Cup Offshore Weekend

Chicago Yacht Club rolled out the red carpet again for their end-of-season regatta: Verve Cup Offshore from August 13-15. Friday offered a Northeast breeze, and the next two days offered more of the same, with sunshine and 70 degree temperatures, but a lighter 5-9 knots breeze in the east/southeast quadrants and continued large chop. The seven-boat J/105 fleet saw a few familiar names at the top of the podium. Those veterans include Jon Weglarz's THE ASYLUM winning with 14 points, followed by Clark Pellett's SEALARK in second with 16 points, and Judie & Ross McLean's ESPRIT d'ECOSSE in third with 26 points.
