The second annual J/Fest New England Regatta, hosted by Sail Newport, took place in the waters of southern Narragansett Bay and offshore on Rhode Island Sound during the weekend of August 12-13. While the regatta was missing the classic Newport summer sailing conditions of great sea breezes each day, the regatta PROs more than made up for it with clever race management. In the J/22 fleet, former College All-American sailor Peter Levesque stole the show, winning class with a 2-1-2-1 tally for just 6 points. William Porter’s CONUNDRUM was second with a 3-5-1-3 for 12 points. Just one point back was Cory Sertl’s WHARF RAT with a 1-2-5-5 tally for 13 points. For more J/Fest New England information, visit
