Perennial champ Scott Finkboner won the C14 Nationals at Mission Bay Yacht Club, as he usually does, but Martin and Cedric Lorch of AYC finished second and George Tingom and Don Hubele took fourth.

The races were Saturday and Sunday, September 14 & 15 in Mission Bay in San Diego using boats that are variously called Capri 14.2s, Catalina 14.2 or C-14.2 or 14-twos.

Martin and Cedric are the reigning AYC Club Champions (and Cedric is the reigning high school champ) and Don has won the Club Championship multiple times.

Turnout is dropping in the class, with just seven boats participating this year, compared with the 20+ in years past.
