The Joe Hagen/John Ross Santa Cruz 27 Gotcha with Al Lehman Jr. and three other crew on board dominated the Santa Cruz 27 Nationals run last weekend (6/29-7/1) at the Richmond Yacht Club at Pt. Richmond, California.
The team was so strong that they locked up the championship after scoring five first place finishes in six races (combined with a third) and sat out the final race. Second place finisher James Clappier finished five points behind in the field of 14.
Our AYC guys had finished second in last year’s championship, run in conjunction with the Whidbey Island (WA) regatta.
