Jackpot Wins Viper North Americans for 5th time

The 2015 Viper North Americans, held in Larchmont, NY, was not only the largest Viper regatta to date but also the largest sport boat competition in North America to date. With 53 boats, this four day event was extremely competitive with a good mixture of conditions – light the first day and puffy the next three. As it was blowing from the shore, it would sometimes be blowing twenty and other times six knots, catching a lot of competitors off guard. Doyle Sailmakers’ Brad Boston on team Jackpot came out on top for his fifth North American Championship win.

Jackpot Out In Front Downwind

With his longtime crew of Curtis Florence and Luke Lawrence, Brad Boston won four races and placed second twice to accrue 45 points after twelve races. As a recent interview on Scuttlebutt mentioned, Brad’s program is all about Keeping it Affordable and Keeping it Fun, “on and off the water, from the time we wake up until we fall asleep.”  Not only is the class itself designed to be affordable, Doyle Boston makes sure that they offer value in the sails they provide to the class – delivering both performance and durability.NA 2015 Awards

Doyle has been very involved in the class for many years and therefore keep the designs and materials up to date. The consistency of the results that Doyle Sails have achieved are the result of ongoing sail development and incremental improvements as feedback from customers is received. For the North Americans this year, Brad used the latest set of Flex 16 upwind sails and a Dynakote spinnaker (a slippery nylon fabric which is great for coming in and out of the sock quickly).

The team at Doyle Boston Sailmakers not only get out there and win competitions, but make sure to share their knowledge with whoever is willing to listen. Brad, Tac Boston, and Chris Jay offered a week long tuning before the event, available to everyone. Their consistant involvement not only benefits other competitors but ensures that the class continues to grow and remains competitive.
