Repeat NA

The North Americans were held in conjunction with the Rolex New York Yacht Club Race Week. Sunny days, southwest winds, and nearly postcard perfect conditions prevailed. Ted Herlihy’s GUT FEELING is again overall NA champion with three firsts, two seconds and a fourth. Second was Dave Filippelli’s CAMINOS with three seconds and three thirds. Third was Steve Kenny and Greg Ames’ GOSSIP with a 1-3-4-2-3 score. As it is in many one-design events, consistency, speed and the ability to recover paid off big. At times, any one of the top three boats looked like it was “toast”, but a bit of serendipity, perseverance and the right shift/ tactical move paid off big to keep them in the hunt.
