2019 Atlantic Coast Championship, Lavallette Yacht Club, NJ


Lavallette Yacht Club in New Jersey hosted the 2019 Atlantic Coast Championship on 9/21-9/22/2019. Regatta Chair Roy Childers did a super job organizing the event and it was a great time for the sailors. There were 25 boats from 6 states on the line for PRO James Wlash and his RC. They got in 3 races on Saturday in very difficult and choppy conditions and 2 races on Sunday when Mother Nature was a bit kinder! And rock star Hans Noordanus was here visiting and sailed with John Wake to a second place in the event.  Hans noted that 15 years ago the first ACC was sailed at Edenton, NC! 

Flying Scot Inc.'s Tyler and Carrie Andrews won the regatta with 10 points with their closest competition at 21 points. The top 6 were (1) Tyler and Carrie, (2) John Wake and Hans Noordanus, (3) Len Guenther and Chris Swensen, (4) Roger and Kate Sharp and (5) John Eckart and Gary Werden. Full results are here.
