Terry Flynn Taking Over J/22 Midwinter Championship
With seven races now completed at the J/22 Midwinter Championship at Jackson Yacht Club in Ridgeland, MS, a new leader has emerged: Terry Flynn on Tejas. Notching a 1,3,2 in Saturday's three contests, the Texan has launched to a 10-point lead heading into the final two races on Sunday. Allan Terhune's Dazzler remained in the silver position with 26 points, while Benz Faget's Fats dropped to third with 27 points. As the throw-out race came into effect, Flynn was able to drop a 14 in the regatta's opening race. Day 1 leader Faget wasn't able to match his prior dominance and lodged a 6,14,8 today (dropping the 14). The 37 teams were postponed on the water during the morning hours, waiting for the breeze to settle in. When Saturday's racing got underway in winds around 4 knots, Flynn took the bullet, trailed by Sean Clare's White Trash and Terhune. John Dyer's Aquavit won the next duel as the breeze increased up to 12 knots. Macho Slavich on Bad Dog placed second, and Flynn third. By the day's final battle, winds backed off to 7-9 knots. Dyer again snagged victory as Flynn and Chris Wientjes rounded out the top three. Racing concludes Sunday. This event marks the highest J/22 Midwinters attendance since 2010.

Benz Faget Wins Third Mallory
A balanced field and limited racing usually leads to close races and a crowded leaderboard. This was the situation on Eagle Mountain Lake for the last day at the U.S. Adult Championship, hosted by Fort Worth Boat Club. After just two races over three days due to lack of wind, Saturday afternoon featured three races for the fleet of talented J/22 teams. In the end, the Southern Yacht Club's Benz Faget (Metairie, LA), Randall Richmond (New Orleans, LA), and Thomas Sweeney (New Orleans, LA) came away with the championship. The win for Faget represents his third Mallory Trophy ('99, '94) and the first for the Southern Yacht Club. Faget is also a member of the New Orleans Yacht Club. Following another lengthy delay, the late afternoon breeze returned, and the race committee scrambled to set up the race course. Faget won Races 3 and 5, and three out of five for the championship.

They topped the 26 teams in the annual event, held September 20-21 by Fleet 61 and The Lake George Club, Diamond Point, New York. Chris' closest competitor was Jeffrey Love with Kevin Brown and Mark Bird onStampede from Toronto, who sailed an excellent series of 1-2-(5)-2-4-3-4 to finish in second place.

This year the race conditions were excellent and provided exciting and varied sailing. Saturday morning started with a brisk temperature of 54°F with winds from the south at 10 to 12 mph with gusts to 16 and then warmed to almost 75°F as the winds lightened throughout the day. The Race Committee was able to complete 4 races for all 26 boats by 4pm. Sunday morning continued the same trend with winds from the south at 8 to 13 mph and higher gusts, and increasing temperatures and beautiful sun and blue skies. The Race Committee completed 3 more races for a total of 7 races for the regatta. The Lake George Club repeated its outstanding tradition of great food, plenty of beverages and an entertaining Saturday night band that hosted a guest singer from the Doyle clan singing an awesome rendition of “Mustang Sally”. Add that to the beautiful venue, usual outstanding hospitality of The Lake George Club, fine regatta organization under Chair Joe Favero, and competent RC work under PRO Dave Dougall, and you have another successful not-to-be-missed annual fall J/22 event. Please plan on coming in September 2015.
