The Helly Hansen Sailing World Regatta Series in Annapolis had three days of extremely challenging light winds, strong currents and ultra-competitive fleets from May 5-7. Pete Kassal and his crew on J/24 Spaceman Spiff won their fleet with 16 points across nine races. “Being consistent was the key to winning the regatta,” Kassal says. “Being the first boat to get out of the current, which was definitely worse on the right, and not stalling the boat was important. I just got my boat together on Thursday, so I was very happy to be out there. The J/24 fleet saw intense competition, with four of the five competing boats winning a race.”
1st – Spaceman Spiff – Pete Kassel – 16 points
2nd – Rush Hour – Patrick Fitzgerald – 18 points
