The Balboa Yacht Club recently hosted local sailing teams as they competed in the Chubb US Junior Triple Handed Championship by US Sailing.

Balboa Yacht Club juniors Gregg Kent and Shane Corwin crewed for skipper Ryan Davidson, showing great confidence during the regatta held over the June 19 weekend. The team of three ended up winning two of the five races to take the overall win with only 13 points, their worst race being a fifth place finish. The three qualified to represent Area J for the junior championships Aug. 9-12 in Toms River, N.J.

Christopher Killian with crew Jeff Tolan and Jack Martin, also from Balboa Yacht Club, placed second, just missing the qualifying spot by three points.
