Team Up

On June 27-28, Chicago Corinthian Yacht Club (CCYC) in Chicago, IL hosted the Windy City Team Race. Saturday allowed for some great team racing with low to medium breeze, and Sunday delivered exciting racing with steady big breeze. Local team Fair and Balanced with skippers Craig Thompson, JB Turney and Ned Turney won the event and earned a berth at the U.S. Team Racing Championship for the George R. Hinman Trophy after a best of 5 final against the second place Team Laser Performance with skippers Taylor Canfield, Matt Clark and Andrew Keane. Racing was very close in the top 4 teams leaving a tie for 3rd place awarded to CCYC teams Happy Factor with Martin Johnnson, Augi Hernandez, and Josh Henrich and The Montrose Saloon skippered by Ben Marden, Andy Graff and Hunter Ratliff. Vickie Matthews served as PRO and Betsy Altman as Chief Umpire.
