GOSSIP wins 2006 East Coast Championship

GOSSIP wins the East Coast Championship held during the American Yacht Club Fall series. The event consisted of 8 races held over 2 weekends.

Steve Kenny, co-owner of GOSSIP reported that as a group effort we traded in our J/105 in for the J/109 in May and made it in time to have it delivered to Block Island Race Week. We won the very first race of the week on the boat for our first time sailing her. We seem to be pretty competitive but without much time with her we fell apart at the end.

However; I am extremely proud of our crew’s ability to excel over the past 3 months in this boat to take the East Coast Championships and feel that it is well worth noting.

13 boats were on the line the top three finishers were Gossip Greg Ames & Steve Kenney 20 pts
Relentless Al Minella 21 pts
Storm Rick Lyall 22 pts

Congratulations to all the owners and crews on a fantastic event.
