The Dillon Open is hosted by Dillon Yacht Club in Colorado each August, the nation’s highest yacht club at 9,017 feet above sea level, located just west of the Continental Divide, a 70-mile drive from downtown Denver. As usual, the DYC offers a great schedule of racing, entertainment, food and other special events that makes it fun for all participants and their families. After five races, it was a clear-cut victory in the J/22 fleet for CAMP ROBBER. Stealing the show was skipper Bill Darling’s team, posting an almost perfect score of 2-1-2-1 for 6 points total to win by a margin of 10 points. However, behind them it was a fight for the balance of the podium. Ultimately, winning that battle was Keith Lawrence’s SHAMELESS with a 1-9-3-3 record for 16 points. Although he beat SHAMELESS in the last race, it was not enough for Mike Kline’s NAUTI MOOSE to overtake them, finishing with a 6-5-4-2 tally for 17 points. Rounding out the top five were Cameron & Cooper Robinson’s USA 720 in fourth place with 18 points, and in fifth place was Peter Fornell’s MAYBE LATER with 23 points.
