Len Siegal’s Lucky Dubie is the world’s best-named J/boat since Smokin’ J was snuffed out years ago, and the longtime Chicago J/sailor tops the leaderboard at the first-ever major J/111 championship worldwide; their North American Championship.  14 boats from as far as Oregon, Florida, and Massachusetts is a solid turnout for a boat that toes the line between Grand Prix and amateur; just one pro is allowed aboard each of the light-but-not-extreme, quick-but-not-extreme J/111.

That’s the good news.  The bad news?  Chicago in the summer might be better for fishing than it is for sailing, at least this week! J/fans can check it out live with full OTWA/Facebook video/interview/photo/updates coverage right here.  Meredith Block photo, event gallery here.  Big thanks to Skyway Yacht Works for the gin palace and Whaler that we’re working from…check ’em out.
