Thanks to Trevor Collins for this report: Hudson Yacht Club played host to the 2017 J/22 Canadian Championship on the weekend of August 19-20. The fleet of 15 competitors took to the water on Saturday with shifty Southwest winds ranging from 6-14 knots enabling the Race Committee to complete four solid races by mid-afternoon. Raised J ended the day with 1,2,2,1 (6) on the score sheet, placing them in first place, followed by Mo’ Money (USA489) 4,3,1,2 (10) and Three’s Company (CAN 457) 6,1,7,4 (18). Sunday delivered near perfect racing conditions with similar wind speeds but more of a westerly direction. Broomstick (CAN693) entered the day on Sunday sitting in fourth place, with 23 points, but were able to pull together three bullets, putting their team in a tie with Mo’Money for second and a favorable tie-breaker result. Raised J maintained their lead finishing the regatta with 11 points followed by Broomstick with 17 and Mo’ Money with 17. Thanks to all competitors for participating!
