Three races were held on the last day of the 2015 Zhik F18 Americas Championship to make fifteen races total. Sarah Newberry and Matthew Whitehead were able to hold onto to their lead finishing with 24 points. Mike Easton and Tripp Burd finished second with 41 points and John Casey and Colin Page finished closely behind Easton/Burd with 43 points. Conditions still were 10 to 18 knots out of the north east, however, it did slightly go east for a race.

Another congrats goes out to our Master Champions Scott Miller and Alberto Serrano and the Mixed- Fleet Champions Sarah Newberry and Matthew Whitehead.

We thank Charlotte Harbor, Race Committee and all the volunteers that helped put this regatta together. The F18 fleet could not have asked for a more organized regatta and with the awesome conditions we saw all week. We know everyone had a wonderful time even with some bruises, pitch poles and sore muscles.
