CONSISTENT GOOD STARTS – THE KEY AT THE ETCHELLS NORTH AMERICANS
Scott Kaufman and Team American Jane 11 best a fleet of incredible talent
Twenty nine teams including World champions, Olympic medallists, America’s Cup sailors and many other talented sailors, raced in typical Southern California light-medium conditions for the Etchells 2017 North American title. With such a high level of the talent, there was no better place to tune-up and prepare for the World Championship in San Francisco next month.
“The regatta was very challenging,” said North Sails Brian Janney, who sailed with Argyle Campbell and finished third place. “Good starts were key as the line favored the right side. Scott (Kaufman) sailed well, he had really good starts.”
The top teams used the North Sails PC-F mainsail, LM-2L and LM-2H jibs and VMG and Full Radial spinnakers. Congratulations to Scott Kaufman and team American Jane 11, the 2017 North American Champions, and Keith Whittemore for winning the Corinthian division!
