2021 PCC

Twenty Finns lined up for the 2021 Finn Pacific Coast Championships hosted by San Diego Yacht Club with sailors from as far away as Missouri, Chicago, and Colorado. Many Finn sailors were using the Finn PCCs as a warm-up to the following weekend Finn North American Championships sailed on the same course out on the Pacific Ocean off Coronado. On Saturday, the fleet sailed in near perfect sailing conditions, with the SDYC RC doing a great job and with three different competitors each winning a race, keeping the scores close with AJ Nosar (UKR7) leading after day one. Sunday morning came with a rare delay due to heavy fog covering the fleet for over an hour. The delay must have helped Long Beach Finn sailor Roland Fournier (USA 444) who came out and scored a 2-1 on the final day to give overall winner, Jack Jennings (USA 81) a run for his money. Came down to the last race of the series to decide the winner, with Jack Jennings securing the victory and later said: “The Top three boats were all within 2 points of each other. I was super happy and lucky to get the win. Thanks to Chris Snow for the quality coaching and running some training for the fleet on Thursday and Friday, it made the difference for me, especially on the starting line where I felt very confident all weekend.” An overall leader from Saturday, AJ Nosar, scored a 3 and 8 to drop to third overall, just behind Roland who scored a 2,1, and tied with AJ on a tiebreaker, but was able to climb to second place overall winning the last race and the tie-breaker, rounding out the podium. Many thanks go out to Chris Snow who invited the Finn fleet out a couple of days before the event during a mini-Finn clinic which always helps before a big event!
