Annapolis-based team wins J/80 race at NOOD Regatta

Local sailors Will Crump, Marie Crump and Thomas Klok combined to win the second race of the day in the J/80 class at the Sperry Top-Sider NOOD Regatta series in Annapolis. The Annapolis team, which also has world champion sailor Chris Larson on board calling tactics, leveraged its local knowledge of the Chesapeake Bay in finding lanes of pressure and managing the shifts in 5- to 10-knot westerly winds. They won the second race of the day by several minutes. "We were able to get away right after the start," Will Crump said, "so we only had one tack. Everyone else had a lot more." With 56 entrants, the J/70 class is by far the largest of the regatta, and one of the most competitive. As expected, mark roundings were crowded, putting a premium on boat-handling and positioning. Skipper Martin Kullman from St. Petersburg, Fla., improved race by race throughout the day, culminating with a first place finish for Touch2Play in the final race of the day and holds the class lead. Skipper Joel Ronning and crew aboard Catapult, one of the class's top professional teams won the first two races, but stumbled slightly in the third race, and sits in fourth place overall. The Minneapolis-based team is keen to avenge a narrow defeat in last year's regatta to Bennet Greenwald, the regatta's overall champion in 2013. The overall winner earns an invitational berth at the Sperry Top-Sider NOOD Regatta Championship in October in the British Virgin Islands.
