Wells/Kern Start 2018 Strong With Win at Southern Comfort Classic

Lenny Wells and Caswell Kern (#1130) topped a 10-boat fleet to win the 2018 Jet-14 Southern Comfort Classic near Asheville, NC last weekend.  Wells and Kern won a tiebreaker over Chris Hennon and Kevin Trebilcock (#483) with three race wins to two.  Barry Saunders and crew Rebecca Walker (#737) won the B fleet and finished 4th overall.

Eight races were run in a gusty northwesterly that saw several boats capsize throughout the weekend.  The seven boats from Asheville Sailing Club were joined by Barry and Rebecca (Carolina Sailing Club), Tim and Lucas Porter (#645, Lake Norman Yacht Club), and Tom Grace and Paula Pacheco (#717, LNYC).  A full recap and pictures can be found on the Jet-14 Class website.
