 RESULTS The 30th Anniversary North American Championship Regatta
After three action packed days and eleven exciting races, Bill Wildner and the Crew of Mr. Bill's Wild Ride captured their 4th J/35 North American Championship this weekend at the Muskegon Yacht Club in Muskegon Michigan. Bill credits his steady and loyal crew who have been with him through all 4 Championship campaigns. The boat was perfectly prepared, the sails were crispy, and the crew work was flawless! Ed Bayer and the crew of Falcon (Four time NA winners) placed second and Bruce Metcalf and the crew of Bozo's Circus, a last minute entry, rounded out the podium placing third. Conditions were outstanding with steady breezes of 8-10 knots, making it easy for the race committee to bang out all eleven races and get everyone back to the dock early every day for refreshments, lies, and good food. Race Chairman and Class President, Larry Taunt commented that "the J/35 fleet has an outstanding group of owners and crew. The racing was intense with ridiculously close crossings, and all the boats finishing within seconds of each other. The level of competition is simply outstanding. On shore we have almost as much fun as the Muskegon Yacht Club provided great food, drink, atmosphere, and a pool to cool everyone off. I wish we could do this every weekend!" This was the 30th j/35 North American Championship Regatta and while the fleet is aging this venerable design is still very competitive around the country and provides an extreme level of competition when they get together to play.
