Eleven J/109’s competed in the Chicago to Mackinac race on July 14th. This was a record number of J/109’s for this race and gave the fleet a one design section in the 99th Mac Race. Rob Zerban’s ZEITGEIST won the section and finished second overall in the 130 boat Chicago to Mackinac Trophy division for big boats. Close behind was the Land’s End charter GUARANTEED PERIOD; second in section and third overall. Jack and Jim Toliver’s VANDA III finished third in the section. Conditions were mostly light despite a quick start to the race.
Congratulations on a great regatta.
