In the J/105 class, my hosts on JoySea continued to keep my first-time perspective of the 20-year-old one-design entertaining. Try as we may to scratch the top, it was impossible to outsmart Joerg Esdorn's Kinscem, which aced the day with a pair of bullets. Kinscem's collision on the opening day, and subsequent retirement, was too much to make up, so the real battle went down between Damien Emery's Eclipse and Brian Keane's Savasana. Savasana, overall winner from the Annapolis NOOD, put in a solid effort match racing Eclipse and keeping the right amount of boats between them. No doubt they'll be the team to beat at the class's North Americans in November.
