Michael Marshall Triumphs at J/22 World Championship
Michael Marshall Triumphs at J/22 World Championship 

It took every leg of all 10 races to determine the winner of the J/22 World Championship at CORK/Sail Kingston in Ontario Canada. With a second place finish in Thursday’s only race, Mike Marshall, Todd Hiller and Luke Lawrence are the 2016 J/22 World Champions. Heading into the 10th and final race, Marshall and Chris Doyle were tied on points at 30. As the 41 teams arrived at CORK in the morning, the after effects of an overnight storm left breeze in the mid-20s, so the Race Committee postponed on shore. But it didn’t take long for the winds to back off to the upper teens, so the flag came down allowing for the showdown between Marshall and Doyle. Brad Julian won the race, with Marshall finishing second to secure the Championship. Doyle placed sixth in the race but second overall with 36 net points. Jeff Todd took third with 43 points. "We went into Thursday with the idea that it’s really three people (Todd was 5 points behind Marshall and Doyle), so it changes the whole dynamic. If it’s two people, you can do a little bit more match racing," explained Marshall. "We just wanted to sail the best possible race we could, and we executed our plan exactly as we wanted to. We got the first cross, and from there we were able to control the race." Over the 10-race series, only two races were sailed under 15 knots, and 9 knots was the lightest. "Kingston as a venue is just spectacular," praised Marshall. "This week was totally different than what Kingston is normally, which is about going left. This week, it was all about going right." Marshall thanked the Race Committee for their efficient execution, saying, "They changed marks when they needed to, dealt with two shoals on either side and set the right length courses. They were cranking out the races without much downtime." The PRO was David Sprague. 
The top five: 
1) Michael Marshall 1, 5, 10, 2, 1, 3, 7, (16), 1, 2 = 32 
2) Chris Doyle 4, 4, 2, 4, 4, (12), 4, 3, 5, 6 = 36 
3) Jeffrey Todd (18), 2, 6, 5, 5, 4, 3, 7, 3, 8 = 43 
4) Travis Odenbach (17), 7, 3, 1, 14, 8, 2, 5, 8, 5 = 53 
5) Brad Julian 19, 1, 1, 7, 15, (42 DNC), 1, 1, 9, 1 = 55

A total of 19 boats came out for the Buffalo Yacht Club’s annual Raw Bar Regatta – the site of the 2017 J/22 North American Championship. Although it started light and shifty Saturday morning July 16, the breeze built to almost ideal conditions by the third of five races held for the day. Sunday was also very nice, and a total of three races were run. The competition was quite close between Chris Doyle on Jug 4 1 finishing first, Mike Marshall on Bad News finishing second, and Travis Odenbach aboard Seabags Sailing Team finishing third. The J/22 Scholarship Team, helmed by Brown University’s Patrick Shanahan, finished fifth overall – better watch out for this team at Worlds! In typical BYC Raw Bar fashion, everyone came away well fed, and a lively party kept some folks up a tad late on Saturday. Final results can be found by clicking here. Return to Buffalo next year for the J/22 North American Championship July 20-23, 2017.
