Chris Perkins led his Masquerade team to victory at the J/105 North American Championship. Hosted by the San Diego Yacht Club, the San Francisco-based boat led from race 1 through race 9 with a remarkably consistent line of 1,2,2,1,3,2,4,4,4 for 23 total points. The team consisted of Perkins, Steve Marsh, Tom Purdy, Mark Chandler, Larry Swift and Rose Eberhard. Former J105 NA champion and Fleet One stalwart Bruce Stone took 5th in Arbitrage. And in another strong showing for Fleet One in warm-weather away regattas, Scooter Simmons took second overall in the BVI NOOD Regatta Championship.
Congratulations to Chris, Bruce and Scooter for strong Fleet One representation in highly competitive national/international level events.
