Local boats PT Blister with Tyler Moore at the helm and Fawn Liebowitz with Al Hobart helming went to the J/24 East Coast Championships in Annapolis and came back with a 6th and 7th respectively out of 76 boats. First went to Jens Hookenson of Hall Rigging, 2nd went to Terry Hutchinson and 4th to Brad Reed. According to Chris Morgan, on Fawn, the right side was the place to be but many of the favored boats went left including Fawn. Morgan said they had a good comeback from 18th after the first day. Sunday saw a nasty squall come through just 2 minutes before the start of the first race on Sunday. The course had to be reset and one boat lost it’s rig. Next stop, J/24 Midwinter in Miami. The only local J/24 planning to go in January is John Reynold’s Downtown.
Chris Morgan of Green Mountain Foils just came back from the Mumm 30 World Championship in Marseilles, France. He sailed on a British boat, Intruder, along with 3 other Americans and 3 Brits. Morgan did halyards and tactics and Intruder took first place! Morgan seems to be gaining notoriety on the pro circuit and plans to go to Antigua Race Week again this winter.
