Julian Edges Out 24-boat Fleet at Mid-Atlantics
The J/22 Mid-Atlantic Championship was held the weekend of October 28. The event was again held in coordination with the J/24 East Coast Championship and hosted by Severn Sailing Association and J/22 Fleet 19. The weekend turned into a formidable competition with a total of 24 J/22s competing. The party Saturday night paralleled the competition in intensity with great food, live music and lots of dancing. It was fortunate to have great weather for the event, with 17-18 knots of breeze Saturday from the south with steep waves, which made for a day of hard work and tactical acumen. Sunday brought 6-15 knots from the east and steadily building as it shifted south. A total of seven races were held with four on Saturday and three on Sunday. Throughout the weekend, racing was tight amongst the top five boats, with lead changes nearly every race between Mike Marshal, Jeff Todd, J.R Maxwell, Chris Junge and Brad Julian. Boat speed, handling through the waves and changing gears was paramount. Going into the last race of the regatta, only one point separated the first place boat. Brad Julian rounded the top mark in fourth or fif5th place and held his boat’s position by the leeward rounding. Julian and his team were able to get ahead of Mike Marshall on the last beat with a right hand shift and round the last top mark in second. They got the jump on an inside jibe and were able to pass J.R. Maxwell on the final run to put enough points between their boat, Marshall’s boat and Jeff Todd’s boat to solidify their win. Brad Julian’s boat included Colin Robertson on bow, who was focused on strategy, and Matt Schubert calling tactics and trimming middle. Much thanks to Severn Sailing Association Race Committee in their efforts managing two fleets on the same course and conditions. Complete results may be found at

US J/22 Class Association Awards First Annual Scholarship Boat to Patrick Shanahan of the Brown University Sailing Team 

The United States J/22 Class Association proudly announces that Patrick Shanahan, of the Brown University Sailing Team, has been awarded the first annual Scholarship Boat. Shanahan was selected from a number of very highly qualified applicants – many of whom belong to the nation’s highest ranked university sailing teams. 

Shanahan will be campaigning the scholarship boat over the upcoming summer months with his fellow Brown University Sailing teammates Sam Alexander, Nathan Housberg, Sophie Hibben, Haley Carter and Quinn Andersen. Collectively referred to as "Team SPHYNQS," they maintain a host of impressive performance records in a variety of dinghy and keelboat designs. The team plans to compete in several J/22 regattas – the highlight of which will be the 2016 J/22 World Championships at CORK in August.

As the city of Cleveland prepared for its first championship win in 52 years, 92 one-design boats were welcomed at Edgewater Yacht Club for the 36th annual Cleveland Race Week from June 17-19. Ten fleets competed, including 14 J/22s. Saturday morning started with AP onshore due to light winds and after a valiant effort by the Race Committee, no races were sailed as winds died throughout the afternoon. Sunday morning, entrants woke to decent, but shifting breeze with winds out of the southwest shifting north throughout the afternoon. The Race Committee was able to get in two races for the series. Winning the J/22 fleet was Vic Snyder & Kevin Doyle's Mo' Money with 4 points, followed by Mike Marshall's Bad News with 8 points, and Chris Princing's Evil Dr. Pork Chop and Mike Meaney's Meaniac tied with 9.

Johnson Tops Jamin Jamaica J/22 Regatta

For the 2016 edition of the Jamin’ Jamaica J/22 Regatta, the Montego Bay YC and J/22 Fleet welcomed four visiting teams, three repeats from Cayman Islands and a new team from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. This annual regatta is an open invitation to the global sailing community to bring a crew to Jamaica, race someone else’s boat (with no rental fee) and get home hosted (at no cost) for a modest entry fee. With 82% of available boats in the country appearing on the line (thanks to owners Steven Cooke and PJ Gibson bringing their boats from Kingston), there were some exciting mark roundings despite the light to moderate conditions. What was a challenge was the usual easterly breeze tending to shift further to the south, falling outside of the race committee’s defined marks. As usual, the very tricky wind shifts were the critical element for the whole weekend. A total of seven races were sailed, with no throw-outs. Bruce Johnson from Cayman Island Sailing Club sailed DEFENDER to first place with just 20 points total. Second was the CALYPSO team led by Michele Cimon from Canada with 27 points. Rounding out the podium was Peter Harper’s ZIPPER from Montego Bay, just 2 points back with 29 points. The balance of the top five was filled out by 2015 winner Mike Farrington from the Cayman Islands on NINA with 31 points and fellow Cayman Islander Suvi Hayden’s crew on AWESOME in fifth place with 32 points. The top five was determined by just five points. For more Jamin Jamaica J/22 International Regatta information, visit
