From the water off Shilshole Bay, the well-known red YC5 race committee boat appeared to be all business on August 12. Six sequences were crisply reeled off, and the J/105s and Melges 24s even enjoyed a second start. No one was surprised, nor should they have been. Corinthian YC of Seattle runs approximately 1,300 races per year across two venues and in classes from Lasers to maxis. The YC5 team, led by PRO Charley Rathkopf and his wife Schelleen, is a well-oiled machine, having run 120 races at Whidbey Island Race Week two weeks earlier.
