Jonathan Lutz, 16, is from Brick, N.J., and sails out of the Metedeconk River YC. Readers of this magazine should recognize his surname—the Lutz family is well known in one-design sailing circles, especially in the multigenerational Lightning class. In 2012, young Lutz won the Lightning Junior North American Championship, and then went on to crew for his father, Jody, and his uncle, Jay, to win the Lightning NAs outright. This is the first time someone has won both regattas in the same year since 1974 (when the youth championship was established). Lutz's crew in the Junior NAs was Reed Baldridge, of Houston, Texas, and Jonathan Pottharst, of New Orleans. Looking ahead, he hopes to one day sail in the Pan Am Games, and he's not ruling out a run for a place on the U.S. Sailing Team. When asked about the most influential person in his career, he says, "Without a doubt, my father. I was fortunate to watch my older brother, Joe, and cousin Taylor sail over the years, which has allowed me to witness everything I need to know about sailing."
