A total of 19 boats came out for the Buffalo Yacht Club’s annual Raw Bar Regatta – the site of the 2017 J/22 North American Championship. Although it started light and shifty Saturday morning July 16, the breeze built to almost ideal conditions by the third of five races held for the day. Sunday was also very nice, and a total of three races were run. The competition was quite close between Chris Doyle on Jug 4 1 finishing first, Mike Marshall on Bad News finishing second, and Travis Odenbach aboard Seabags Sailing Team finishing third. The J/22 Scholarship Team, helmed by Brown University’s Patrick Shanahan, finished fifth overall – better watch out for this team at Worlds! In typical BYC Raw Bar fashion, everyone came away well fed, and a lively party kept some folks up a tad late on Saturday. Final results can be found by clicking here. Return to Buffalo next year for the J/22 North American Championship July 20-23, 2017.
