straight A's

Bruce Mahoney is crowned 2017 A Cat North American Champion. Mischa Heemskerk is overall regatta winner and Open Champion. Matt Struble is runner up to Bruce.
The last two races today were sailed in 13-17 KTS and challenged the sailors compared to the light to moderate breezes earlier in the regatta.
Mischa won the final two races in convincing fashion with blistering speed upwind. He foiled upwind looking to other sailors like he was on a table top one foot off the water.
Bruce followed with two seconds and Matt with two thirds.
In the Classics, Craig Yandow showed some great speed to pass Rush Bird for the overall win. Ken Marshack won the final race when he finally returned to his old form….said he just pulled a ton harder on the downhaul and just took off.
This will probably go down as one of the best NA’s the class has had in many years. It was simply awesome as I reported day after day….perfect weather, great variety of wind conditions, great race management, and picture perfect venue. Thanks to go out to San Diego YC, the race management, the volunteers and the California State Parks. Pic thanks to SDYC.
